How to Making Heel?
The manufacturing process of different high heel shoes are the same. It consist of material cutting, stitching, lasting and shoe assembly. The whole shoe making progress involves individual tasks among several departments within the factory.
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.
For strap sandal, upper and lining will be laminated together and then made it to be infinite length with correct width.
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, 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. 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.
For strap sandal, we only need to cut the strap into correct length as per pattern of each size.
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. High heels 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.
After heel screwed on shoe, the sock with padding will be insert inside of shoe, glue it and attach firmly. The sock will cover the area which screw the heel and it is for a more comfortable fitting.
Once heel screwed and sock attached, then a complete shoe finished. Our workers will clean the shoes and match in pair, ready for inspection
When a complete shoe finished, final inspection is the most essential step.
