- Starting from 1968.
- A pair of luxury handmade custom shoes from the Boai Road shoe district in Taipei City is a status symbol of wealth. From shining customers’ shoes to shoe repair, from stitching and sewing an uncountable number of handmade shoes, dripping sweat, and with hands covered in calluses and the marks of shoemaking... forty years of hard work and perseverance helped turn the brand into a major international OEM line factory.
- An opportunity arose when the old Taiwanese shoemaker met the German designer, Theresa Kiihlke. After meeting on several occasions the two them found that their principles towards shoemaking were aligned "Good shoes can be both stylish and beautiful". Consequently, the KIMO GERMAN DESIGNER FOOTWEAR brand was born.
