The shoe last, a 3D mould for making a shoe, is, generally speaking, not well understood by shoe designers. A shoe last not only influences style and fashion, but also comfort and fit. This chapter discusses the design of shoe lasts, including definitions and shoe last main design curves. Additionally, shoe lasts of different heel height and orientations are provided, to enable designers to create new shoe lasts and eventually design shoes.
