From 3D prototyping to managing our entire portfolio of shoe factories, the creative and energetic teams in our Product Development and Sourcing department are responsible for all aspects of product development, sampling and shoemaking.
How do we make our products better looking and better value? What can we do to make our shoes more comfortable than our competitors? Challenged by our designers and customers to make the finest shoes in the world, these teams are constantly championing change and innovation to improve our product and the way we work.
The Product Development team are the technical brains behind the shoes. Based all over the world, wherever there are designers and shoe factories, they engineer our shoes so that they look perfect, perform correctly and are value engineered to be profitable for our company.
The Materials team are also spread across the globe, managing a large supply base of specialist companies who provide us with all the leather, textiles and components that go into our footwear.
Our CAD/3D team not only support the product teams with design and digital prototyping, they also look at new ways to design and create footwear.
It’s down to the Quality Assurance and Lab to ensure every last component of our footwear is safe, non-toxic and compliant with our high standards of Corporate Responsibility.
