    René Cléon, a shoemaker and bootmaker by trade, joined the front lines during the Second World War. He was taken prisoner in 1940 during the Battle of France and spent 5 years in captivity in Germany, where he continued to model small leather shoes in his spare time. 

    At the end of the war in 1945, in the weeks following his return, he formed a team of apprentices and bought his first stitching and assembly machines. The story begins in the family home in La Romagne, with a specialization on Kneipp sewn mixed models. The sons, Jacques and Louis-Marie took up the torch and diversified the production in the 1970s -1980s.

    In 1988, the KLEMAN label (contraction of Cléon Manufacture) was officially launched. Cléon then became a supplier for several French public administrations who trusted his know-how. The company begins producing footwear for the Société Nationale des Chemins de Fer (the French national railway company), Air France, certain fire departments, and even the French army.

    KLEMAN shoes have survived fashion trends by offering a raw and authentic unisex style. Their models appeal to both men and women who seek a certain efficiency in a pure and uncompromising style. Their iconic models include the ISO EN-20347 as standard, and thus enable an additional guarantee thanks to anti-slip, abrasion resistance materials.

    Their PADROR leather tyrolean shoe references boots, or derbies, and have remained unchanged since the 1980s. A sober and functional worker shoe which now dresses a new generation of talented urban dwellers around the world. KLEMAN sets up the professional shoe as a real accessory of a timeless workwear style.
