REDEFINING HOW WE MAKE SHOES
For the past ten years the men and women of Otabo have been working to create, collect and invent the technologies necessary to bring shoemaking into the twenty-first century.
Our unique team of shoemakers are highly skilled engineers and computer trained technicians, who have learned from some of the best shoe dogs (traditional shoemakers...a dying breed) in the industry. They have established a new standard of shoemaking, bringing together the best of old and new. Otabo shoemakers are a new generation of craftsmen.
Guided by the time tested principles of good shoemaking, we have replaced many of the hand skills lacking in our modern work force with the digital skills of robotics and coomputer controlled production processes.
Now, even the smallest details of your shoes are exquistiely crafted - digitally - without requiring the years of apprenticeship necessary to develop hand skills.
So, while our leather cutting is preformed on a one-micron accurate waterjet, and precision stitching is accomplished with the help of military vision-guided technology, the basic fundamentals of good shoemaking are all still there.
