Lasts are one of the milestones of Carmina Shoemaker. It is precisely in the creative process of the last where the mastery and technique of the shoemaker are combined with an exhaustive study of ergonomics and beauty to create an elegant and comfortable shoe. It is therefore the perfect communion of these elements what constitutes the starting point and the aim of any shoemaker.
This is why the last becomes one of the shoemaker's most distinctive elements. At Carmina we create the lasts for our shoes following the same process as our antecessors, sculpting a rough piece of wood using chisels, rasps and planes until we obtain the desired shape, (the same way a sculptor carves a sculpture). Far from being a quick process, it can take several months for a last to be created, approved and included in our catalogue.
