We've teamed up with legendary shoe craftsman and pattern extraordinaire, Marcell Mrsan, to develop a series of professional shoe patterns beginning with the AJ1 High and Low (this product page is for the HIGH silhouette)

We developed our patterns from scratch, basing the design on the same exact AJ1 lasts that we offer at DLS HERE Using our patterns in conjunction with our lasts ensures the best possible fit and shape (i.e. no weird saggy spots or mudguards that sit too high/low on the toe, etc.).

We opted for a symmetrical design, which is slight departure from the asymmetrical production shoe design.  We did this because our lasts are pretty close to being symmetrical, and it's also generally easier to work with symmetrical patterns.

We'll be compiling FAQs as we encounter them, and both DLS and Marcell will be developing some online content that will help with the construction of this silhouette.  We'll announce all of this on our homepage and Instagram account (@districtleathersupply) as it develops.
