For the female foot, the instep is altered using the heel provided with the modelshape.
It could be, for example, that to alter a 3cm instep to one of 9cm or 10cm, several turns are required. To complete this process, the bootmaker will of course make a new fitting model.
The sawing style of the shoe last will be chosen on demand. At present, we offer two types of sawing :
The traditional corner that frees up the measure via the instep.
The sawing “system”, which separates the shoe last into two parts using an oblique saw, from the base of the instep to the middle of the instep, thus freeing up the slipcase, followed by the forefoot.
Achieving a shoe last with an ideal shoe requires hours of work.
For the bootmaker, this trouble may be prolonged by the moulding of an existing shape to the measurements of their client, but taking care not to finish the end. This surplus material will be used by the bootmaker to refashion a different aesthetic, but leaving the fit unchanged.
A client can have several types of ends, while at the same time retaining a feeling of comfort with all of their footwear.
Done in concert with the stylist, prototyping requires many hours of work and testing.
We'll answer your expectations by carrying out a study before accepting any project.
