Digitoe began as the Dream of a Shoemaker
The journey from dream to materialization
took many years to accomplish. Digitoe developed each piece of
the technology in its own research facility in Port Townsend,
With little or no outside financing available,
Digitoe was forced to take the slow path of technical development.
In 1995 Digitoe Custom Footwear Technology
was finally working in reality. A team of people from Digitoe
went to Boston to display the new creation and offer it to the
American Shoe Industry at "Shoe Tech 95".
Digitoe Unveils Foot Imaging Technology
" Shoe Tech 1995 "
By 1995 Digitoe had built the world's first
successful Digital Foot Scanner, and perfected the technology
for making Computer
Generated Individual Shoe Lasts.
Between 1995 and 1999 almost all of the
remaining shoe manufacturing facilities in North America that
were owned and managed by the major shoe companies had closed
down, and they moved their production off shore.
During this period from 1995 - 1999 Digitoe
was growing and developing new technology for the future, while
the rest of the shoe industry was melting down. The equipment
from these shoe factories was sold off at auction prices to people
from developing countries all over the world.
Digitoe "Shoes for the 21st Century"
more than just a trademark slogan... It is a statement of purpose
Digitoe has since become the leading developer
of Know-how and Technology for Customization of Footwear, in
the "Global Village."
Digitoe philosophy and concepts have been
quoted and adopted by several major international companies in
their Mass Customization projects.
Digitoe Computerized Footwear Systems plans
to continue to develop new technologies for the future and to
commercialize their technology for the benefit of mankind.
Perfect fitting footwear for everyone,
can be a reality today with the Know-how and Technology developed
It will take time, capital resources, and
people with vision to rebuild the shoe manufacturing industry
in North America. We are looking for.
