How to Making Boot?
The shoe making process starts with cutting materials. All production materials will be confirmed before production.
Shoe parts are generally hand-cut into different pieces, every part for every size needs its own pattern pieces.
On this stage, material usage and wastage is the most important that need to be controlled, our workers are with decades of cutting experience, they have a good knowledge on how to cut the shoe uppers with the most usage and less waste.
Besides material cutting, some hand-work like skive edges, gauge marking are finished here before moving to stitching department.
Shoe technology like print, stamp or embroidery are made after shoe cutting finished.
Stitching shoe uppers
Once the shoe parts are cut, the stitching department takes over.
In the stitching department, the operations are divided into simple steps, the first thing for boot making is toe shaping, which proceed with a heat shaping machine for a better toe curve and shape. With this process, the shoe could fit people’s feet better.
Then leather pieces are stitched together. First the upper, then the lining. The toe and back heel is reinforced with a toe cap and counter.
To prevent the leather pieces off position during operation, Stitching workers usually attach one to one another at the edges with glue. First, the upper is stitched together, followed by the lining and then zipper if needed. After both upper and lining have been stitched together, the seams are neatened and loose thread are trimmed.
To make shape on the shoes, a counter is added between the upper and lining at the heel, and a toe cap is added at the tip of the shoe.
Finally, the stitching stage is completed with the shoe size marked and move to next stage.
Lasting and assembly
This stage is to attach sole to finished upper and fix the heel on shoe, then a complete shoe finished.
When shoe upper finished, the upper is drawn into a shoe lasts, upper will fit tightly over the last for shaping. boots are made in three separate sections—the upper, the sole, and the heel. Strong cement is used to bond the upper and sole together, and they will be put in a press for approximately 12 seconds to press the for a better bonding so that the upper and sole won’t peel off.
The heel itself will be attached to sole and screw it on shoe using nails, screw nails, tacks, or sets of molded prongs (or some combination), depending on the style and construction of shoes.
For boots style, the sock with padding will be insert inside of shoe before lasting. After heel screwed securely, we will cement the heel area of sock to make it attach firmly. Once heel screwed and sock attached, then a complete shoe finished. Our workers will clean the shoes, match in pair and ready for inspection.
When a complete shoe finished, final inspection is the most essential step.
