All of our shoe lasts are created by our Cobbler-in-Chief, initially as hand-sculpted wooden prototypes. These shapes are used then precision turned by machines into the hard styrene lasts that we use in our factories.
Our shoes are built around our unique Anatomical Last that mimics the profiles of the human foot and results in the precise proportions and sculpted fit we demand. its unique design, has been refined after years of intensive research and exclusive to Oliver Sweeney. Sculpted to give a support to the arch, a gentle twist through its length simulates the natural shape of the foot, and helps reduce rolling in the outside.
All subtly different, each of our shoe lasts have differing shapes, features and details that give them unique characteristics and make them appropriate for different styles of shoe.
