Grisport footwear is built with ergonomic shaping specially designed to adapt to any foot. Using our unique CAD system we simulate the walking experience in each of our designs. Our laboratories perform tests to check the abrasion resistance and durability of materials so that we can guarantee greater resistance to wear and tear. Our team work with customer feedback to improve our products constantly. Every batch of footwear is tested for durability and quality.
We've put together a gallery of images to show the process we go through to create each and every boot and shoe.
The design team use our 'CAD' system to design each shoe or boot.
Our designers hand cut templates for materials to make prototypes.
Our huge store of materials is key to keeping our production running every day of the week.
We use this many eyelets every week!
We use several protective 'toe-caps' during production of our safety boots. From steel to lightweight composite.
Each design is checked and tested in our lab.
Leather thickness is checked upon delivery to make sure it is the correct thickness.
An abrasion machine is used to make sure that all of the materials used in our boots are durable and hard wearing.
One piece of leather from every batch is checked to make sure that it does not tear under duress.
Every single pair of shoes or boots needs this many cutting dies for every single size! Each one is precision made in steel to the correct size.
All of the pieces of material required to make a single pair shown here in one tub.
Moccassin styles are still stitched by hand to ensure comfort.
Superb hand-eye coordination is required for stitching uppers.
Every pair of boots in hand-made in the same way.
Testing the 'waterproof' bootee inside our walking boots.
Footwear and parts continuously move around the factory to undergo over 200 processes during production.
Carousels carry footwear around the factory to each manufacturing section.
Shoes awaiting laces and soles.
Machines are used to speed up some processes.
Insoles are added in by hand.
Our robots scour and prepare the shoe before the sole is attached.
A Last is used to make sure the footwear stays in the right shape.
Our sole mould store contains the shapes for all sizes of each of our soles.
Our boots are lightweight and flexible because of our unique 'injection' method of attaching the sole.
This is where the magic happens. The boots become 'one piece' when the sole is attached to the upper using molten rubber or P.U. during injection.
We test a boot from every batch produced to make sure it is waterproof before we send them to you!
We run many quality control checks on our footwear.
Safety boots and shoes get extra testing to ensure they comply with regulations.
Finished pairs are tagged, labelled and boxed up.
Shoes are sorted by country for our delivery trucks.
