Sample room

Cortina’s ultramodern sample room makes over 95.000 prototypes each year. With the help of skilled people and the most advanced machinery, we bring shoe designs to life before going into production.

In-house prototyping

We produce all prototypes on-site and supervise the making of the sample as well as the production afterwards. As a result, we know the details of the production process, which allows us to spot possible production issues at an early stage. This information gives our suppliers a clear image of the focus points during production.

The Sample Factory

With qualified people, shoe expertise and the best tools in house, we decided to launch our own high-quality footwear sample service: The Sample Factory. A one-stop solution for external shoe retailers and footwear brands that need prototypes across a variety of categories. The Sample Factory is located close to Dongguan, the world’s fashion heart of the footwear industry.
