At SARTORI 1980, the lasting department plays a crucial role in the shoe manufacturing process. The skilled staff at this department is trained to identify and resolve any potential problems that may arise, ensuring that each pair of shoes is of the highest quality.
PREPARING THE DIFFERENT COMPONENTS
Before the different components of the shoe, including the insole, sole, heels, and uppers, are assembled on the last, they must be prepared. This includes sanding the parts to improve the bond with the adhesive and applying glue or nails to specific areas.
The lasting process is where all the components of the shoe come together and are bound with glue, nails, heat, cold, and pressure, using custom-made machines. Precision is key at this stage to ensure that each shoe is of the highest quality and fits comfortably.
