First, we measure each foot individually using the latest techniques and provide each customer with an appropriate fitting shoe to try on your feet. You will decide how you like your shoe to fit on each foot! We will make the exact fit that you prefer. Then knowing the exact last feel that you like, we are ready to start the process to make you a custom fit, comfortable pair of Tauer & Johnson shoes.
We use computer generated lasts to be the form for your shoes and a computer to cut the pattern of the shoe style you selected. From this point on it is finished by crafts people with perfection as the leather cutter puts a hide on the cutting table and selects the right place to lay the pattern and cut the leather by hand to enhance the look of the shoe. The process is finished in the old tradition of patiently molding and forming the leather you selected over the last shape used to measure your feet. All of our shoes are made airport friendly, with fiberglass shanks.
The final product is a bench crafted pair of shoes that will fit each foot in a most comfortable way providing years of walking comfort and style that will make both of us proud!
