The uppers can be produced in different variations, depending on the type of final aspect we want to give to the shoe.
A wide range of materials and combinations of materials are now used in the manufacture of footwear, boots and shoes. The base uppers are mainly made of leather, synthetic materials, rubber and fabric.
