Now that your shoes have been put together they will begin the stitching method where ultimately the craftsman will begin attaching the upper to the Margom sole through a singular 360 degrees stitch around the shoes.
What we do differently with our sneakers compared to all the other luxury sneaker brands such as common projects, Koio, and Oliver Cabell is that each sneaker is produced with a metal shank & cork, which increases comfort and longevity.

Once this is done, the sneakers will be inspected, boxed with two premium dust-bags and a shoe horn, then shipped via DHL Express. Shipping is only 1-3 days, worldwide.
For Dress Shoes & Boots:
That last steps are shown in the video below. Your dress shoe or boot has now gone through assembly and is ready for the Goodyear method. The most important features of this steps is the installation of the Goodyear welt insulation, which is comprised of several parts; the cork, the metal shank, and the 360 degree double stitch.
Part II of the craftsmanship process is comprised of three major steps, with hundreds of small steps in between.
Step 1: The upper part of the shoe is shaped over the last and fastened on by sewing a leather, to the inner and upper sole. As well as using a welt, stitching holds the material firmly together.
Step 2: The welt forms a cavity which is then filled with organic cork. The cork component, apart from acting as a thermal insulator, optimizes comfort when putting the foot down by forming your footprint within the shoe by the production of heat from your feet, making the shoe highly resistant and long lasting. After initial use the “footprint” stays on the cork adapting the inner sole and cork to the morphology of your foot. This means more comfort and grip!
Step 3: The final part of the shoe is the sole, which is attached to the welt by some combination of stitching and a high strength adhesive, hide glue.
The result is highly valued for being relatively waterproof by minimizing water penetration into the insole and the relative ease of resoling as long as the upper remains viable. Welted shoes are more expensive to manufacture than those mass-produced by automated machinery with molded soles.
