Making Shoes

Recommended Posts

Thought this was interesting! They provide the template and soles, you do the sewing! Could certainly be adapted to using leather rather than cloth!

I think this would be great for someone who had never made shoes before, but wanted to give it a try!

Only if your feet are standard and they fit that standard. I have extremely wide feet, so spend too much time showing ignorant salesfolk I cannot wear their shoes. Others have thin feet. I'd have to go up about three sizes to get a standard width to fit, and they don't make shoes that long! Plus the trip danger is loke wearing a clown's shoe.
I'm fully aware you ladies have a culture only beaten by the Chinese bound feet for forcing your plates* into shoes which are halfway between physiologically crippling and demonstrably masochistic, but there's no need to encourage it!

This wasn't an issue when all shoes were cobbled, but since plastic injection, I have to travel halfway across London to find a shop which sells gym shoes which fit. They, on the other hand, can barely handle me because my feet just aren't crazy enough. My venturing into the area is part of learning how to adapt shoes to my needs.

*Plates? I was raised in cockneydom. Plates o'meat, feet.
