Shoe Development

Shoe development need many work with the designer. Once the design concept has been selected and reined it is time to turn the drawings into a new sneaker.  This is when the Footwear Developer joins the Designer to move the project forward.

The Developer is an experienced technician that will transform the drawings into instructions for the factory.  The development phase starts with a drawing and ends months later with a sample in the salesman’s hands.

The Tech Pack

Together, the designer and developer will create a detailed “tech pack” or a set of speciication draw- ings or “specs”.  These drawings and documents detail every part of the sneaker from the upper to the outsole bottom.  The speciications include the name of each part, the material, supplier, thickness, and color.  The spec includes the shoe last information, logo art, design details, emboss effects etc.  The spec may also include sample shoes, material swatches, photos, or any other notes to help build the samples.The spec may be e-mailed, sent by courier ser- vice, or hand carried by the Developer to the fac- tory.  At this point in the process, the Developer is now responsible for getting the sample sneakers built.
