Leather is the best material for shoes and that is why the people prefer to use the shoes made up of the genuine leather. Earlier the shoes, made up of leather upper and leather soles were used but now a days the cost of leather have gone very high and other alternative materials are being used. The shoes made up of the leather soles had very small life and because of this, the alternative soling materials were developed which had longer life and were also lighter in weight. Today, in quality shoes the good quality leather is used for upper and synthetic soling materials like Rubber, PVC, TPR and PU etc. are used for soles.

The manufacturing process may vary from design to design. Here a general process of manufacturing has been outlined.
upper and lining components are clicked by clicking machine as per graded patterns. The different components are then marked. Then, the components are skived and folded wherever required. Then the upper components are stitched and the lining components are also stitched to the upper components to complete the uppers. The uppers are mulled and lasted over a last which is already having insole attached to it. The lasting can be done by a combination of lasting machines. The wrinkles from the lasted shoes are removed either by wrinkle chasing machine or hot steam. The lasting margin is then roughened by roughening machine and de-dusted. Then the adhesive of required type is applied on both the lower side of lasted upper and on the pre-conditioned sole and then the adhesive is allowed to dry. The dried adhesive is then reactivated. The sole is fixed over the lasted upper by hand and pressed under the sole press. After this heel attachment is done. The de-lasting is done after removal of excessive adhesives and trimming of excessive threads. The shoes are then finished, socks are put in and shoes are finally inspected and packed.
