Shoes and Craft

A shoemaker's blog about shoemaking

Every shoe is a new challenge, a new adventure… at least in bespoke business. My customers have special demands – that’s why they come to me, right? Most of them very regular, perfectly healthy feet, but they want to have something better, they can get in stores, ready made. The recently posted black oxford was one of these products. I know a lot of ways to finish a shoe, form a heel and a sole, and far not tried every combination. So, this time I tried something which is very special, and specific to old masters work. Certainly every small step to perfection cause extra hours of work – but who can say, it doesn’t worth it?

Here are some pictures about the making process.
