CHAPTER 2 - INLAYS AND TEST SHOESWhen your lasts and inlays are ready, CYS offers you the possibility for a fitting stage. By means of a foil-fitting shoe in combination with inlays you can see if there are any pressure points, which can make you decide to adjust the lasts. The fitting stage can be a convenient option before ordering complete shoes. If you would like to extend the fitting stage with your client, you can also choose to fit the shoes with leather trial shoes with reinforcement provision. We also offer disposable leather test shoes. If you would like to test the special orthpedic concepts and reuse them in the final shoes, you can also order lining shoes as fitting stage.
If you have ordered inlays, we will process them in every type of shoes. In this chapter you will find an overview
of the types of inlays which we offer.

CHAPTER 3 - UPPERSThis chapter gives you more insight in our manufacturing process of uppers. Uppers can be ordered separately, allowing you to complete the construction of the bottom and mount the shoe, or as part of our complete shoe service. For Uppers alone, we can receive orders via email together with an existing pattern, a picture or select a model from our catalogue, together with the ground pattern or a scan of the designed last. For a complete shoe you can also specify different reinforcements or padding options which specifically meet the needs of your client.
