Heritage footwear manufacturer Red Wing Shoes has just released this video showcasing just how much work goes into making just a mold for a shoe sole. Following master mold maker Craig Holst, we’re given a breakdown of how the company makes its molds in-house. From crafting a shoe bottom to making a reverse mold and measuring and weighing the mold, the process proves to be a very labor-intensive affair and with a turnaround of five to six days per mold, it’s clear that Red Wing takes its shoes and shoe molds very seriously. Check out the video and let us know what you think below.
