Claudia Schulz, the highly capable former buyer of Ariston who has been running the fashion side of Schuhkurier and Step, is taking responsibilities for all the shoe-related editorial operations of their publisher, Sternefeld Verlag. Mathias Schiffmann and Hanns Hönnekes remain as chief editors. A few days ago, Schuhkurier launched the first shoe courier (sic) prize. The winners were Paul Green of Austria and Herkenrath, a German shoe retailer based in Leverkusen.
