shoemaking components supply for footwear craft artists
5 5
by Natasha - October 2016

I recently ordered a pair of brand new plastic shoe lasts from a new supplier shamrockarts.etsy.com, they produce components for shoe making industry and also sell them to retail buyers. I just received the shoe lasts in the mail, and I'm very happy with them. The item arrived in excellent condition. The seller was very helpful in choosing the right size. I only bought one pair from at first as a test and I must say I'm super happy I love them! Highly recommended.
