Last No. 617
Produced in May 2014. Last 617 is a Women’s Collection last featuring an elongated toe with soft-almond shape. This last gives its styles an elegant look, especially if they are unlined like Cora and Angel, but the addition of a sturdy rubber sole can transform the aesthetic into something gutsier like Anna or Holly. 617 is now established as the most widely used last in the new Women’s Collection since 2012.
