MTO

Not satisfied with the RTW stock styles? Want to try craftsmanship that goes beyond RTW, even approaching Bespoke? Want more unique styles and color combinations? Want more complex material combinations to complete your dress style? Please try our remote MTO service.

Different from other MTO services, our MTO does not follow RTW craftsmanship standards. For team shoemaking brands, the production process of MTO is much more complex than RTW, with a separate production process, so the craftsmanship is more sophisticated and the quality is better.

Size

First, size. We need to solve the most important aspect, which is how big of a shoe you need. We can provide size recommendations based on the static data you provide, or we can make fitting shoes to observe your dynamic effects to recommend size. This is a minimum requirement for all services.

Style

Next up is the style. ACME offers over 100 different styles to choose from, ranging in difficulty from low to high, with varying prices. If you’re not completely satisfied with the existing styles, you can also provide us with a design idea or make adjustments to the existing styles, such as increasing or decreasing the difficulty level, or making changes to other details on the shoe upper.

Last

Another important option is the last. For formal shoes, we have over a dozen lasts to choose from, and for loafers, we have over six options. You can choose the last that you prefer, but keep in mind that changes in last may affect the sizing and style, requiring us to make a new pattern. This service is only available for MTO and above levels.

Color/Leather

Next comes the leather. Different types of leather represent different styles. ACME sources the finest leathers from around the world, including classic calf as well as peccary, goatskin, kangaroo, and camel leather, along with more exotic options like shark, lizard, and crocodile(alligator). For most leathers, we offer a patina service that adds charm, allowing you to choose your preferred color based on your preferences.

Construction

Next comes the construction, which refers to the process of sewing the upper and sole of the shoe together. Following the principle of handmade craftsmanship, ACME only offers techniques that can be completed by hand, including classic hand-sewn welt, 180 Norwegian stitch, 270 Norwegian stitch, 360 Norwegian stitch, and storm welt.

Lining

In addition, the color of the lining is also worth mentioning as a special service. ACME offers over 20 colors to choose from, providing plenty of options to match or contrast with the color of the shoe upper.

Sole

Moving on to ACME’s exclusive special services, how would you like the sole of your shoe to be styled? Would you prefer the sophisticated beveled waist (London waist) or the sharper fiddle back? In addition to achieving perfect styling, we can also create a more defined waist, making the shoe more slender and distinctive.

Extra Option

The following are some additional options for you to consider. Firstly, the color of the sole, would you like a solid color or a two-tone design? How would you like to incorporate the color you choose? Additionally, the style of the heel, would you prefer it to be angled, straight, or even a wine glass shape?

It is worth mentioning that if you are looking for more functional shoes, you can opt for Vibram’s Eton rubber sole, or the ultra-light sole from Italy, or even the more powerful Vibram rubber sole. For everyday purposes, we can also add rubber soles and metal toe.
