What is full custom?Updated 9 months ago
How is this done?
In order to get the best result, we strongly recommend the process of creating foot castings be undertaken by a trained professional who is familiar with making castings designed for cycling shoes. Can't find a suitable expert nearby? Some of our customers and a number of our professional athletes perform the foot castings themselves. With an eye for detail and some patience, this can be performed in the comfort of your home - but it's not a task we recommend unless absolutely necessary. Full custom shoes are an investment and it's worth spending the time and effort to get the castings created professionally.
Accuracy is absolutely critical when it comes to the foot castings so regardless of the trained professional at the helm, ensure they follow our supplied instructions to the smallest detail. The better the castings, the better the result.
Where do I begin?
In order to kick-start the full custom process, simply place your order and our custom team will be in touch shortly afterwards to discuss next steps. Be advised, full custom shoes cannot be rushed and once the initial order is placed, most customers receive their finished shoes within approximately 12 weeks. This time includes shipment of the casting kit to the customer, time to have the castings made and shipped back to our factory in China plus 10-12 weeks of production time.
Keep in mind that you will need to return your completed castings to our factory in China at your own expense. So, keep in mind that there are some additional costs associated with purchasing full custom shoes outside of the product cost. For our US customers, it's worth exploring a shipping comparison site like Parcel Monkey or similar. Comparison providers generally offer better rates with the same level of service.
