A shoemaker friend asked me: Are you crazy? You educate your competitors?
Yes, I do. 🙂 First: Shoemaking is not just about competitions. It is an art, which deserve to survive.. and: I enjoy it. I don’t think that the market is not big enough to provide orders for many more makers. And finally: if there is no “education” to the customer, how the hell they will know what the handmade shoe is, and how it should be appreciated?
