From this visual material, company staff will create a digital model with which you will create a flexible sole adapted to the customer's foot.
Once this phase is finished, the customer can customize color, design and materials. Being able to select from organic cotton to the trendiest vintage jeans, the variety of materials that those responsible for the project promise us is spectacular and all Respectful towards the environment.
