Fixing manufacturer mistake with your shoe designs
I’m studying hard ur courses and I have some questions.I’ve received the sandals and sneakers which made by manufacturers of mine from Guatemala and Thailand. I have some problems with these products:
The sandals from Thailand, they used the kind of studs that like punched so it left sharp edges, to provide customers hurting by them I need to do some improvements. What’s ur suggestion? See attached IMG 2469 pic of the studs.
The Guatemala sneakers:
They used a slippery plastic sole, see attached IMG 2470, which I hate very much, how can I change the soles to rubber sole? What’s efficient? I’m talking about 78 pairs of them…
One design does not hold the ankle, can I put an eyelet more at the top to solve this problem? See attached picture IMG 2086 of this model.
One design has jute edge surround the foot, see IMG 2172 attached, Which is hard, do you know a method to make it softer there?
The Guatemala sandals (pic IMG 2472) :
They are leather sandal with embroidered textile which is thick, the result is unwearable inner sole at this moment because there are bombs where it connects the textile(including leather lining), how can I flat the inner sole to make them wearable? With cork/foam?
They burned by hand the letters of my logo on the inner sole, which do not look like my brand at all… what should I do? Cover them with well-made textile logo with glue?
I am very sad about the delivered goods but I have to solve these problems all by myself. Please help me! Any idea of you I’ll appreciate a lot.
Thank you in advance!
Met vriendelijke groet, Kind regards,
Attach the pieces of leather in the shape of the existing leather elements that holds the laces , place the eyelets on them or just make holes. This will be a little bit different than what you wanted but that is what you need to do fixing shoe designs.
4. Shoes with jute edge:
Try to crumple the edges a little bit or hit with the hammer. Maybe it will soft the edges
5. The Guatemala sandals:
In this lesson I show how to make those channels on the bottom of leather midsoles.
