THE IMPORTANCE OF A SHOE LAST.
Brought to you by Mr Tango Shoes' working team.

WHAT IS A SHOE LAST?


It is the solid form around which a shoe is molded...

Shoe LastThe fit of a shoe depends on the design, shape, and volume of the Shoe Last.
The Shoe Last must represent the anatomical information of the foot, while at the same time giving the finished shoe a pleasing and fashionable appearance. Traditionally, Shoe Lasts are made of hardwoods such as Maple or Beech. However, modern day Shoe Lasts are made of high density plastics that are 100% recyclable.

Each Shoe Last is designed for a particular heel height, toe shape, and type of footwear. FOR EACH SHOE SIZE IT IS NECESSARY TO MAKE A PAIR OF LASTS, AND THE SAME APPLIES FOR THE WIDHT AND HEIGHT. So if, for instance, you want to have shoes with different toe shapes, then it is necessary to create more than one pair of Shoe Lasts.

A proper fitting pair of Shoe Lasts is a solid investment, and the first step towards creating proper fitting and fashionable footwear.
