The design process… and my experience
The process, besides pleasant it is simple and with a funny twist. It may take several things: That you go with something very firm or that you do not have much idea and let yourself be inspired by the great Glent store… or even, as was my case, you were with positive thinking and end up choosing something completely opposite of what you intended. My initial idea was a light shoe with buckle and summer british touch; and in the end I have finished with this moccasin gray and somewhat destroyer. ¡and i'm delighted!
My feet, yellow.
Arriving, they measure your foot in a machine that x-rays the exact shape of both feet and tells you the most appropriate measurements ¿you know one thing? ¡This machine told me that I don't really have a 44 real! But my foot length corresponds to the last of 44, but my foot and forefoot width makes join 2 numbers.
Once all well measured, begins the process of define the model, the color, material and details. Un total de 18 different models, with over fifty different skins, six types of sole and a wide palette of colors seventeen seams, ten for the laces and lining several to make the combinations are endless. Through a virtual configurator on the tablet placed in his shop, You can go online to see how the idea of what you want materializes. Incluso, to make it even more yours, can customize the inside of the shoe with a phrase. I chose “el trip longer it begins with a single step”, a quote from Lao Tse and luxury that comes when some shoes for shoe you from the street and to all of you.
To go crazy with the wide variety
I felt very comfortable during the whole process and were guiding me as to improvements that could make the model. Even we design two completely different models and then choose once finished. Between the summer of suede and fine point, and the moccasin with a twist destroyer, I decided on this antre model charcoal gray with black leather tab I think it will become a must in my wardrobe, able to accompany me for a long time and on many different occasions and power accommodate both serious moments as more relaxed depending on the look.
I must confess that I usually settle for shoes “normal” and that I don't usually have size problems, or not to go comfortable and scratches, etc… pero once you try the custom made – it happens like with clothes – it begins to be appreciated beautifully. If you fancy having some great shoes – or give the experience – do not hesitate to count on Glent Shoes and its ability to make us happy when dressing, as it should be, starting with the feet.
