Plastic moulded shoes


Recommended Posts

How do people finish these type of shoes? Mainly when it comes to reheeling them. I get a few in every now and then that are like a rounded mould which makes it a bit harder to finish round just the part that's being replaced but doesn't look great if you take off a bit more. It goes from a shiny finish to a Matt finish that stands out. Just curious if there's other options or not as silly as it sounds?

For the 'rounded' heels use a wide sole trimmer. For 'flat' heel blocks either heel trimmer on toppiece or scour whole block on fine band. When scouring make the last one (with hand coming towards you) go all the way round in 1 movement.

With thermo plastic you can then make them 'shiny' by pressing on quite hard on the brush, then a gentle brush going away from yourself.  

not sure if this makes any sense...
