If you’re a shoe importer, you’re bound to receive a shipment of shoes or sneakers at some point in which the stitching doesn’t meet your quality standards. Poor termination points at stress points lead to shoes coming apart. Alert shoppers will notice this issue immediately — and won’t waste time putting the item back on the shelf. Even if they pass the “eye test,” improperly sewn shoes often don’t last long and will fall apart, which means a lot of dissatisfied customers — and fewer footwear orders for your company.
Poor stitching can occur for several reasons. Sewing machines not properly set up during production could be a cause. A lack of skilled labor is another contributing factor, especially if the workers do not receive adequate training. And in some cases, depending on price points, the quality control practices may have been overlooked, allowing substandard products to pass inspection — and end up in your shipment.
Instead of wasting time and money sending improperly sewn shoes back to the manufacturer, send them to Quality Corrections and Inspections. At QCI, we specialize in high-volume repairs and inspections for the footwear and apparel industries. We have the resources, facilities and expertise to fix the mistakes of others. Count on us to improve the quality and increase the value of your shoes — and transform them into sellable products that will appeal to consumers.

The QCI team includes skilled mastercraftsmen who will use high-quality equipment and thread to sew the shoe materials back together properly.
