And the design process – first step, making the mean form. I can tell you something about it:

a.) Finding the appropriate and comfortable shape on the men last is difficult. Trust me on that – I make it every day. On the women’s boots you have to follow the shape for the leg too. Even bigger challenge.

b.) ..but which man wouldn’t want to work with a beautiful woman’s feet? :)

This is a very special pair of shoes. I cannot tell you the reason yet. That info will come exactly on 20th of November.
