Made with German precision since 1969, Ricosta and the infant Pepino range of children’s shoes combine durability, comfort and style. They are manufactured to a high quality, using the best quality leathers and have a remarkably light flexible sole. Pepino designs are based on barefoot principles to allow children's feet and their movement to develop naturally.
Their winter range includes many waterproof styles that are renowned for their hardwearing performance. All their shoes and boots are noticeably lighter and more flexible than their competitors, and will outlast most. and Pepino shoes are known for a slightly wider and deeper fitting, ideal for high insteps, and removable leather foot-beds with a handy fit indicator in the Pepinos. That said, the quality of their cut means they are a beautiful fit on most feet.
Over the years Ricosta has won numerous awards for their high quality, ecological leather, including winning gold five times for the German Leather Goods Prize. They have also been the Footwear winner in the UK Footwear Industry Awards for three of the past four years.
