Last Comes First
We finished up the final details of Casca's first last this week. Any cobbler can tell you, it's one of the most important steps in the shoemaking process, and we were determined to do it right. Because of our unique construction techniques, we had to make some big decisions regarding our internal cushioning system and create accommodation for it within the last.
Once we carved out the initial foot form, we had to calculate the compression of our advanced cushion and add accommodation within the last. We used a 2-part resin to increase the height while maintaining a streamlined, anatomically correct profile.
What's next? We've sent it off to a state-of-the-art 3D scanning facility in Alberta to map the surface. With the 3D file, we can start modeling the sole components with high precision. More to come!
