The family-owned company, now run in its third generation by Gerd Trostel, was founded in 1926 in Ludwigsburg-Ossweil. Its headquarters has been in the industrial park of Affalterbach since 1976.

Over the years, the production area has been expanded several times in order to meet the increasing demand for products made by the Trostel Company.

The Trostel Company specializes in manufacturing and selling indoor shoes for gymnastics, dance, artistic gymnastics etc., which are mainly used in sports for all, but also in high-class sports. The company counts among the leading manufacturers in Europe.

At present, up to 400,000 pairs of shoes are manufactured yearly with approximately 30 members of staff. In spite of fierce price competition from so-called low-wage countries, the shoes are still produced in Affalterbach exclusively. They are sold via retail trade as well as via the big chain stores of specialized trade for sports and shoes, and online.

Since 2009, the Trostel Company has been manufacturing so-called “crawling shoes” for infants. These shoes are made of high-quality, very soft and smooth leather, that has been tested for harmful substances.

Meanwhile, the fourth generation of the family, represented by the son Christian Trostel, is actively involved in the company. Thus, the continuing positive development of the family company is granted.
