Which steps are involved?
2. The Perfect Fit:
The making process begins with ensuring the perfect fit.
At first we take detailed measurements
from the client‘s foot.
Using these precise measurements we build the right last, where the leather upper of the client’s bespoke pair of shoes will start to take shape. There is an endless number of lasts in different sizes, shapes and heights.
3. Patter Making:
This step is one of the most difficult ones as we transfer a 2D design onto a 3D last and back to a 2D pattern, which then becomes a 3D shoe.
A trial shoe is created, allowing the client to get a sense of how the shoe will look like. During this fitting, final amendments are taken into consideration to meet the client‘s expectations.
The process of thinning out the edge of certain leather parts is called skiving. It enables a seamless transition of overlapping parts.
