Progress on the New Style
SOM Footwear is constantly evolving to bring you even more comfort and style. We’ve been collecting feedback from our loyal customers, and we’re almost ready to release our latest style! For those of you who have been asking for a more sporty looking fashion shoe- you are going to love our new design (don’t worry, we kept all the features of the SP-L that you know and love!).
We are continuing to use our recently acquired McKay sewing machine to attach the rubber sole to the shoe. This process allows us to cut down on our production time and reduces our chances of creating an imperfection in the shoe this late in the production process. (Our old process required us to sand down or remove any excess glue from the finished product, which sometimes resulted in a slightly imperfect shoe like the ones we sell discounted at our Outlet store.)
We have also switched out our harsh solvent based glue to a more eco-friendly water based adhesive. This switch is one that we feel really good about- it’s better for us, better for you, and better for the environment!
We are getting closer and closer to releasing this model every day! We will be sure to keep you- our loyal fans- updated on all of our progress.
