About us

Innovation from tradition

In Germany, our family business  – the company L. Priebs GmbH & Co. KG – belongs to the manufacturers of safety footwear having a long  tradition and great experience. It was founded in 1798.


Factory building of Priebs around 1930                           The beginnings – the production of felt shoes

We are deeply rooted in the Ruhr Area with its mining history. In the 1930s, we manufactured miner’s boots that can be seen today in the Ruhr Museum in Essen, Germany. It was the first first safety boot against twist injuries called
“anti-twist” that we developed in the 1980s.

The first safety shoes

Today, waterproof safety footwear and chainsaw boots are the heart of our work. We would like to produce them with the lowest emissions as possible, environmentally friendly and socially compatible.
