Salvaged Shoe Lasts

These antique hardwood shoe lasts were salvaged and reclaimed from a mill in Lawrence, Massachusetts.  Once the standard for shoe manufacturing in the United States, hardwood shoe lasts are now only used for high-end, bespoke shoemaking.  We’ve salvaged a variety of shoe lasts in different styles, finishes, and sizes.  We keep a bin in stock at our Cambridge warehouse and showroom, and can make larger quantities available upon request.
 
These shoe lasts are used by craftspeople, artists, and homeowners for a variety of projects. We’ve seen customers transform these remarkable bits of history into coathangers, hat racks, door handles, paperweights, and more.
 
Price: $1.50 per shoe last.
