This provides the appropriate platform to take specific last measurements and ensure the last conforms to the required standard. Lasts and the shoes made on them must match the feet they are intended to fit.
SATRA's extensive surveys enable lasts to be checked without the need for extensive fitting trials. This is achieved by checking several key last dimensions when the last is standing with the heel raised as in wear. SATRA's last assessment jig provides accurate repeatable dimensions using two digital readouts on both left and right foot lasts.
The jig is manufactured in aluminium and clear plastic sheet. There are two built-in digital slides, both of which can be zeroed at the appropriate datum position. It also incorporates an angled measurement device that facilitates the location of the last joint line. A separate pair of digital callipers and a toe spring gauge are also supplied.
