The JALAS® brand owes much of its strength and position to the evolution of the JALAS® last. The last is the heart of JALAS® – the DNA of the shoe.
A last is a form used in the manufacture of shoes. Lasts have been made from various materials, including hardwoods, cast iron, and high-density plastics. The knowledge we have accumulated since 1916 from making sports shoes, ski boots and safety shoes, is all applied to what we do today. The JALAS® last has adapted over the course of our long history to become a perfectly shaped foundation to provide comfort and well-being for your feet. We honour our history. And we are proud of our DNA.
