Broken Bird Bootmakers

Based in Söråker

Broken Bird Bootmakers manufactures high quality classic mens shoes with timeless design and optimum fitting. They carry a ready-to-wear as well as a custom made line and here is where they set themselves apart from other manufacturers. Broken Bird combines traditional craftsmanship with the innovative use of 3D scanning technology. Their method of manufacturing gives more people than ever before the opportunity to wear a pair of individually fitted, customised shoes at a reasonable price.

The scanning of a client's feet enables the production of a shoe crafted to an exact, for one individual. The shoes are manufactured in consideration of three dimensions: size, width and volume. Other brands use scanners as well, however, after performing a 3D scan Broke Bird Shoemakers craft an entirely unique last for each and every customer and do not just choose a fitting last out of their library. Once your feet have been scanned once, they are saved in their database, enabling you to order your personally fitted shoes online or in stores without having to scan your feet ever again.

You can perform a scan of your feet at Hallman's Shoe Repair in Stockholm, Sweden. The shoes are designed in Sweden and produced in Portugal.
