Düssin, Germany - Under the motto, "Running shoes made in Germany," the brothers Ulf and Lars Lunge decided to start up a running shoe factory in Germany. The Lunge Laufschuhmanufaktur develops and produces technical running shoes for both hobby joggers and professional runners alike. The aim of the Lunge brothers is to manufacture comfortable, extremely high-quality running shoes from the best materials for every kind of runner. In addition, they believe in responsible and sustainable production, so particular consideration is given to ecological and social issues in the manufacturing process.

The success story of the Lunge (www.lunge.com) started with a specialist shop for sports shoes in Hamburg. Now the company has six run shops in Hamburg and Berlin. Since 2008, Lunge has been producing running shoes in its own factory.

Great importance is placed on the selection of the materials and optimum workmanship. On principle, the materials used are all free of pollutants and have often been used successfully on the market for decades. The selected materials are ideally processed thanks to the state-of-the-art production facilities. The material for the shoe uppers are cut on a system by eurolaser (Lüneburg, Germany; www.eurolaser.com) that has been part of the production operation from the beginning. A big advantage of this technology is the thermal process that welds the cutting edges, thus preventing any subsequent fraying and eliminating any preparatory or finishing work.

The shoe uppers are cut accurately with the laser system.

"Flexible shoe parts that need no die-cutting and that can be flawlessly reproduced from different materials make our eurolaser system the very centerpiece of the Lunge production," says Ulf Lunge.

Many years of experience in the market and sophisticated, state-of-the-art technical equipment ensures that the Lunge Laufschuhmanufakur is well positioned for achieving its aims for the future. The owners feel there is nothing standing in the way of the planned expansion of the range. Even the purchase of another eurolaser system is in the pipeline.
