Action 1: Cutting the pattern
Nearly every set of over the knee boots or general shoes we make at Shoes of Prey is unique therefore requires a unique pattern to be cut. Pattern cutting involves creating the shape of each part of the shoe, whether it be flat boots or just everyday shoes. With all our possible shoe mixes and each shoe size requiring a brand-new pattern, we have a lot of patterns in our studio! An upper is the part of the shoe that sits on top of the foot. The other parts of the shoe that need to have actual patterns made consist of; the sole (the core of the bottom of the shoe); the insole (the internal part of the shoe that sits straight under the foot); the outsole (the outer layer that straight touches the ground) and the heel.
Action 2: Tools of the trade
One of the most essential tools for making a shoe is the last, something which consumers never ever generally get to see! The last is a foot-shaped piece of product over which the shoes are molded. A different last is utilized for each shoe size and design. For example, a shoe with a pointy toe will be formed using a last with a pointy toe. The last is so crucial because it identifies the fit and feel of the shoes.
Action 3: Edging
This is a process of completely flattening all of the edges of the pieces of different kinds of leather that has been cut to the pattern so it is much thinner than the remainder of the leather piece. This makes for crisp, cool signs up with in between pieces of leather giving you a lot more comfortable fit along with the quality surface you would expect from a set of handcrafted shoes.
Action 4: Stitching
The different parts of the shoe are then thoroughly sewn together.
Step 5: Cutting preparation
The next action is to prepare the trimming before it is added to the shoes.
Action 6: Picking the heel
What size heel would you like? Our stiletto heels been available in various shapes and sizes, and you get to choose! These end up being the core of the heel of your shoe – enclosed in the leather you have actually picked. Information and guidance can always be gained by looking up an independent fashion advisory board.
Action 7: Cutting the excess
This involves carefully assembling and making the finishing touches to the ornamental upper for another pair of hand made ankle boots.
Action 8: Preparing the sole
The core pieces of the sole of the thigh high boots or shoe are then all covered either side by the insole (the piece that sits versus your foot) and the outersole.
Action 9: Shoes of Victim Logo design
The Shoes of Prey logo is adoringly contributed to your shoes.
Action 10: Attaching the outersole
The outersole is the affixed to the shoe.
Action 11: Finishing
The final stage for cutting, cleaning and polishing of the shoes. The shoes are then boxed and shipped straight to your waiting feet!
