Helmut Newton. Walter Steiger, Monte-Carlo, 1983

OUR STORY

Walter Steiger was founded in Geneva in 1932 by Walter Steiger senior, making made-to-measure shoes for men and women.

His eldest son, also Walter Steiger, started the ready-to-wear line in 1967, during the Parisian Haute Couture’s golden era. In 1974 the first shop was opened in Paris, followed by stores in New York and London.

The maison’s style became famous for the originality and innovation of his creations – always characterized by cleanliness of the lines and proportions – and since has become a permanent and recognizable name in the fashion and art world.

WHAT IS TANK STEIGER

TANK Steiger is a new chapter in a family’s history, a traditional vision combined with innovation, design and love: beauty in a shoe. Tank Steiger is me, Laura Steiger, daughter of the iconic shoe designer Walter Steiger. When my father told me he that he didn’t like the direction the fashion industry was headed and that he wanted to stop.

I realised that I wanted to keep our family vision alive – a vision capable of transcending both time and aesthetic trends: essential designs made to last – but in a new way, my way.

I personally design the shoes together with my father Walter, who liked the project and the idea so much that he started to design again, sharing with me a passion for style without comprise and taking the chance to put creativity back at the forefront of fashion.
