Unique from sportive to fashionable chic
Custom-made orthopedic shoes can look as good as they are comfortable to wear. Maasleder thinks along with orthopedic shoe technicians by supplying premium quality leather in various looks ranging from sportive to modern classy elegance.

Per hide or per 100 hides
In order to meet the diverse needs of your customers, you can custom order leather from Maasleder per hide.

Maasleder Orthopedics
Because of our years of experience, we are familiar with everything required for making orthopedic shoes, which is why we offer a wide range of solutions for shoe uppers and insoles. We can deliver numerous articles directly from stock. If this is not possible, we work closely with our suppliers to guarantee fast delivery.

Service may well be our most important product. Besides our expertise, we really have a feeling for leather. We would rather not sell anything than sell poorly chosen materials for orthopedic shoes. We only do what we believe in. We stick to our word and solve problems by treating your customers as our own.



In the beginning of the 20th century, Waalwijk was the heart of the flourishing Dutch shoe and leather industry. In 1926, Gerrit Maas started a company and called it G.A. Maas Leder.

A great deal has changed over the years, but the founding principles of Maasleder have remained the same. We are driven by our fascination for leather. We never stop learning new things about it.

Under the management of three generations of the Maas family, the company has grown to become an international leather trader. Maasleder has become a name that tanneries and producers of shoes, fashion accessories and leather goods trust. We act as the agent for various leading Italian tanneries and work internationally with widely diverse customers. In the Netherlands, we are the most important supplier of leather for, among other things, orthopedic shoes.

A few years ago, our company building was completely renovated and extended. This project has helped us optimise our business operations and will enable us to deliver directly from stock in the future.

“Leather is not mass-produced. Each hide is unique.”
