Abstract (en)

[origin: EP3470563A1] The present invention relates to a method for producing a crimped upper, said upper being made up of a section edge (A), a leg line (B), a crimping arc (C), a metatarsal and phalanx line (D) and side areas (E, F), wherein the crimping arc (C) is produced with a special technique called circular "gradual needle suspension". Thanks to some particular and innovative process phases, the working evenness of the upper thus obtained allows a result which is visually even and without interruptions in the weaving change, to such an extent that no deformity in the fabric can be visually perceived by an external observer; the use of such a method allows to reduce the time and complexity of the working phases, giving the possibility to offer different variants of the same upper model and avoiding the creation of several plastic prototypes.
