    Default Shoes

    I make handwelted shoes. I'm a self-taught amateur and I've only made about 15 pairs. Here are some I've made.












    And since someone is bound to ask, I started a pair of cycling shoes about a year ago but the project has been buried my other stuff. These will have a custom laminated carbon fibre midsole (if I ever manage to finish them).

    Youtube videos, then books. I started when I graduated from design school and no longer had access to the schools metal and wood workshops. I wanted to do something that I could do with basic tools in the corner of my small apartment. I've acquired a bunch of machines since then, though.

    If the process is more important than the result, you play. If the result is more important than the process, you work.

    That's very cool - something I've wanted to do for a while (as well as build a bike frame...) mainly as I have bad feet and off the pef shoes aren't great. Not sure I have the time to invest though.
    It's not the years, honey. It's the mileage.

    I suggest taking a shoemaking course if you are truly interested and want to be efficient with your time. I made about 5 pairs over a year or two by myself before starting to get "acceptable" results, I'm sure a course would've cut down that time by quite a bit.
