If a first visit by the client or their product development team is not possible, then at this stage, and in order to save time, all that would be needed for Polo to commence work on the client`s behalf would be:

  • -Lead shoes with or without lasts in order to develop last forms and get a feeling for the type of article required.
  • -Designs of shoes to develop for the various groups of constructions.
  • -Lasts, material / colour specifications if already defined.
  • -Price targets.

  • Working with the above, we can either send prototypes for appraisal or, as is more usual, someone from the client`s development department will visit us. Here it is then possible to evaluate the source factories, the products, and in most cases, give the final touches to the end product envisaged.
