Shoe Last 

The shoe last is the foot form that is used to set the shape of the shoe. The shoe last can be made of plastic, metal or wood. Each different toe shape, size and/or heel height requires a different last. More information can be found in our Patternmaking and Last Design book. Lasts and lasting jacks are available for purchase. Essential tool for DIY shoemakers.
