Shoes and Craft

A shoemaker's blog about shoemaking

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 I did. 🙂 But I believe they were only crap pieces to practices. I would never throw a shoe on the ground.

“It was torture. He’s a maniac.”

Yeah… maybe a bit particular about details..

“He was taught in a communist school— a two-year program which started when he was 14. He believes that shoe making needs to be taught the same way he learned. I disagree, but I complied.”

I never went to any communist school, we had socialism that time. Anyway the school was traditional so nothing to do with any politics, only traditions, which was much more mean than any idealistic political party, including communists.

Anyway, a whole interview is here.
