Happiness in the Workshop

1. What else a beautiful stiletto boot could generate than happiness? Here it is:


I design her (sic!) for my next course – those lucky ones who has chosen the High Heel II. will make a pair. Some more picture for appetizer. Anyway you still have 48 hours to register.


And the design process – first step, making the mean form. I can tell you something about it:

a.) Finding the appropriate and comfortable shape on the men last is difficult. Trust me on that – I make it every day. On the women’s boots you have to follow the shape for the leg too. Even bigger challenge.

b.) ..but which man wouldn’t want to work with a beautiful woman’s feet? 🙂


2. What else would a 7 eyelet, full brougue black oxford cause to a man’s soul other than happiness?

This is a very special pair of shoes. I cannot tell you the reason yet. That info will come exactly on 20th of November.



3. A nice picture of your student could also be source of happiness? (gloat? 🙂 )

Today Seiji learned the famous spinning stitch. He took the spinning literally. See these pics.



He wasn’t happy, that I made these pictures. But I was happy making them.

  1. Hello Marcel,

    Oh my. The boots are beautiful. I would love to learn how to make them. I have a question: I know some things about shoemaking, but I have never studied under you-so I am reallly a beginner.

    Could I take the High Heel Shoe Making Course Level II (I want to make the boots) although I haven’t taken the first level class? Please let me know your opinion. I am trying to prepare if you ever come to the west side of America.

    Thank you.

    1. Hello again,

      Would you please add my new e-mail address to your mailing list? It has changed. And would you let me know what you think about my question above.

      Thanks Marcel!


  2. Mmmm these boots 🙂 Just fantastic!

    Marcel I believe I have to come Hungary again;) But first I try to practise knife sharpening and cutting the leather edge!

    Best regards,
