Our shoe making process presents you with many
options. You may choose your own style from patterns, leathers,
and colors. You can also adapt an existing style that you have
always admired, but were unable to find in your size. At that
point, you send in your measurements using our form and foot
trace. Our craft masters will create a custom pair of lasts that
specifically fit the exact contours of your feet.
Once the lasts are created, our designers
will produce a pattern that not only reflects your exact
measurements, but that is also the most well-crafted design of
the pattern and style you selected. The designers work to
showcase the natural beauty of your chosen leather. After the
pattern is complete, our trained craft workers will stitch the
upper. The patterned leather is stitched together to create a
durable upper with strong seams. It is then shaped to fit the
precise measurement of your arch. And finally, a cobbler will
craft a heel and sole, and add them to the shoe.

2. Making the Last
3. Layout and Design
You may choose an existing shoe style or create your own custom design from a wide selection of patterns, leathers, and colors.
Using your standard shoe size and your custom measurements as a guide, our craft masters will create a pair of finely shaped lasts that embody all the features of your feet.
Our designers will produce a pattern reflecting your exact measurements, and will carefully plan the best layout for bringing the natural beauty of your selected leather to your shoe.

5. Shaping the Upper
6. Constructing the Sole and Heel
Trained craft workers will then stitch the patterned leather together to create an attractive upper with strong, durable seams.
The upper is then fitted to reflect the curvature of the arch, with the leather pulled taut and secured into place.
Finally, an experienced cobbler will add a sturdy sole and heel, completing a pair of strong, comfortable, and long-lasting shoes that have been custom made for your feet.
