Our Process

Our Two Step Process

Step 1 – Initial phone consultation – We’ll discuss and show you (using our web site) or by voice, an array of choices in everything from leathers, colors, inlays, toes, heel styles and estimated pricing.  This will start your thinking process on the design elements of your footwear.

Step 2 – Meet with a Maida’s designer at our showroom – This is the fun part of the process when your choices come together in an overall design plan that pleases you. Then we will discuss the best fit and last for your foot to ensure a proper fit. The following are the topics we will cover to get your order underway.

  • Selecting the leathers
  • Discussing and designing the upper (the fun part).
  • Measurements
  • The Last (determines best fit for your foot, plus toe and heel).
  • The type of sole system to be used. (Goodyear welted or Blake).
  • Payment
