Right shoe size
Hello. Of course you can sign up and come to our showroom and we will find a size for you. We can also show you samples of shoes and materials.
Hello. We make shoes in different sizes.
To determine your size, we use our own methodology, read more about it here >>
This is not so, we already have ready-made shoe styles responsible for how the shoes sit on their feet. Our specialists, after obtaining your measurements, pick up the size and, if necessary, adjust the existing shoe according to your foot. This allows us to make the size suitable not only along the length, but also on the width, as well as the volume and lifting of the foot. At the moment, our dimensional mesh is from 34 to 48 according to GOST.
Complex cases we consider individually after receiving the measurements.
No. Orthopedic footwear is a separate branch of the shoe industry, it is more related to medicine and requires the presence of a doctor on the team. At the moment, we sew casual shoes, taking into account your measurements of the features of the structure of the foot. At the same time, we can make shoes taking into account the orthopedic insole already written to you, for this you need to send two types of measurements with and without insole, and if you visit the showroom, you must take the insole with you.
Undoubtedly, as a rule, the orthopedic insole is thicker than usual and makes ordinary shoes more tight. Therefore, if you have an orthopedic insole, be sure to let us know so that we can take it into account while selecting and adjusting the size.
Manufacture of footwear
We have our own production in St. Petersburg, Russia
For our products, we select only high-quality components.
For the top of the shoes we use natural leather, in all its varieties (suede, velour, nubuck, etc.). Also for the top of the shoe we use air mesh, for additional ventilation.
