I have plenty questions about courses, shoemaking which – certainly – I answer, but maybe you wanna talk about it with fellow makers or mates, who worked and learnt in my workshop. Here you can. Join this community, and ask, talk, listen, share.. SHOEMAKER’S FACEBOOK COMMUNITY

SO: – 732 thousand views – almost everyone watch them from the beginning to the end (except the spinning sticth one – I kind of understand..:). – half of the downloads came from last october (some videos are on for 3 years) – Somehow I attract 45-54 people.
This interview came out a few month ago, and gave me a hard time if I want to hear about it anymore. Let me quote some sentences: “He would throw our work on the ground and tell us to make it again, but then not tell us what he didn’t like about it” Comment: maybe… Read More
My youtube “fan”: “stop talking bs and change the tittle of your video to ” how shoes are made” because your video is not a tutorial!!!!!!! ” How to make a shoe – Part 1.” sounds objectively, directly like a tutorial, and you end up misleading people because YOU’RE NOT TEACHING ANYONE ANYTHING! why is… Read More
1. We set up a room for last store, as I had to find a better organized solution. We had place now for many hundreds lasts. 2. I soon start a goyser from scotch grain, a brlack oxford, and a suede shoes. Next ones will be pretty interesting: elephant and cordovan. Plenty orders. 3. We… Read More
I recently got this comment on my youtube channel, for my first video: “this is not how to make a shoe, moron! ” how to make” are tutorials and this is not one! imbecil!” More than 185.000 hits didn’t find it useless, but this guy yes. I would mention that there are 14 other videos… Read More
This is the name of my new last creation. Don’T ask why.. OK, ask. After the workshop address – this is our street number. My collagues sugested my name (Marcell last? Noooo), and plenty other strange name, so finally I decided this. Last number nine – sound nice, doesn’t it? I alreade created 2 models… Read More
This is something not to miss in Hungary, especially if you are interested in getting the old world’s relics, bargaining on things which are good for nothing – except if you need some new items catching the dust in your home. Anyway, the reason I attend the market is simple: students. They wanted to see… Read More
So, the story started quite much time ago: I asked, asked and practically begged for my last suppliers for a certain type of last I had in my mind – I drawn them, photoshopped, existing models, but I never got back the right result. It is hard to explain: like seeing someone at the first… Read More
Here they are! They spent one year on the last, but every minutes worth. I think I will use this finishing style in my RTW line also.
RTW collection is on the tube – and this is official now. I will start with 4 models, an oxford, a derby, a loafer and a wholecut. Stay tuned. The sample uppers are already clicked tomorrow we will start to assemble them.
Recently I went back to check the wikipedia about shoemaking. Before I gave up I extended the post about the techniques we use. (I am a master shoemaker, so I believe I know something about it – sorry for not being humble). So, my version (2nd paragraph on the screenshot): But… unfortunately… Too much personal… Read More
