The Express Lane 2.0 is basically the same 2-Week rapid MTO Goodyear Welt service, but we have vastly extended the amount of customizing features. You can now choose between 4 shoe lasts, 19 shoe styles, 14 sole units, 3 welt styles, and different types of materials. Special heel height, extra width (EE), and burnishing are also available.
What Makes it Different from our Regular Made To Order System?
Shoe parts (uppers and soles) are partially pre-produced and kept in stock in our warehouse. These uppers are made of unfinished raw crust leather (no color) in order to be hand-painted during the finishing process.
When an Express Lane order is placed, the production begins from one of those pre-manufactured uppers. From there, it follows the same manufacturing process as any other MTO order: the upper is molded over the last, attached to the sole, and then finished on the patina workshop.
