Together, the proven SNF-1 sneaker last and our classic rubber cupsole unit are a great choice for making casual-style shoes.

Based on the classic “Vans” styling, the SNF-1 last instep is suitable for low-cut, mid-cut, and high-top patterns. This shoe last also works for slip-on and lace-up style shoes.

  • The SNF-1 last allows for a sleek vamp and toebox yet it’s accommodatingly wide in the midfoot
  • The SNF-1 last features a defined feather edge (suitable for both hand-lasting and Strobel-lasting shoe constructions)
  • The hinge allows for easy removal without damaging your shoes
  • The classic cupsole unit has a high sidewall for bonding
  • The rubber egg-crate midsole provides cushioning and reduces weight
  • The modeled sidewall groove allows for a secure stitch-down attachment

This shoe specification drawing pack is all you need to get started detailing your own shoe designs. This pack contains a technical specification drawing for a fully detailed shoe design, ready for your creative touch.  Upper views, outsole designs, material specs, colors. This is how a pro prepares a shoe design for the factory.  This 8 page drawing set is in Adobe .pdf format and Adobe Illustrator .ai live vector file.
