Meeting with our team is the fastest way to get your questions answered and your project moving in the right direction. We meet with you to review your idea and advise you on all related inputs – on footwear design and construction, development and production, pricing, quality control, shipping, marketing and more.
We’ll help you all the way through the process, from the first sketch in pencil on paper by a skilled illustrator-designer through prototyping and on into production and finally, shipping.
Modelling and manufacturing by hand is a unique process. High performance rendering equipment represents the simplest and most cost-effective way of viewing details in 3D before the actual model is made.
Once the first sample is made and approved it is all in our hands. All you need to do is tell us the details, outline the shoe collection you want to develop, and we do the rest.
All of the inputs that make up the larger consulting package is the result of the knowledge and experience gained from producing millions of pairs of shoes over the course of our 20+ years in the shoe manufacturing business – an effort that spans two generations of a dedicated family business.
