Here at Aquila, we cater to a variety of customers, from customers with exotic tastes to customers with wide feet.
The length and width of our customers are taken.
Determining the correct shoe last size
A balance has to be struck between the length and the width when determining the correct shoe last size to use. The shape of the toebox is also taken into consideration.
The best fit shoe last for tapered front shoes, is the one that measures 2.5cm-3.5cm longer than the feet length measured. For rounded or square toe box shoes, a shoe last of about 1cm-1.5cm longer than measured feet length is more than enough.
Sometimes we do use wooden shoe lasts when it fits our customers’ feet. Their shape and sizes are less consistent than plastic shoe lasts. As a result, sieving through the many wooden shoe lasts might yield a shape and size that fits our customer’s feet.
