What is Tubular Construction?Updated a year ago

Tubular shoe construction is a method of shoe-making where the upper is wrapped around a cylinder and stitched together, creating a seamless and lightweight shoe. This technique is often used in high-end shoes and is known for its elegant and streamlined appearance.

One of the main advantages of tubular shoe construction is its flexibility. The seamless design allows the shoe to conform to the shape of the foot, providing a comfortable and custom fit. The lack of seams also reduces the risk of rubbing or chafing, which can be a concern with other shoe-making methods.

Another benefit of tubular shoe construction is its lightweight design. The absence of a lasting board or midsole means the shoe is lighter and more flexible than other types of shoes. This can be particularly appealing for those who spend long periods of time on their feet or prefer a shoe with a more natural feel.

In addition, tubular shoe construction is known for its elegance and sophistication. The seamless design creates a sleek and streamlined look. The shoes are often considered a status symbol due to their intricate and meticulous construction.
