Jones & Vining has been a global leader in innovation and technology as it has evolved over the past 90 years. But, we still believe in the art of traditional Lastmaking.

We combine state-of-the-art CAD systems with hands-on bench model making at every one of our locations. Our highly-trained Last makers offer fine-tuning that results in perfect fit and comfort.

Our team of master Last-makers uses the power of 3D CAD systems to:

  • 333 copy Build production Lasts in less than two weeks.
  • 333 copy Shorten your design and development cycles.
  • 333 copy Offer increasingly complex, world-class Lasts.

We deliver premium quality by design.
