Seamless galoshes body sounds awesome. Must be a great challenge though to make sure the back lines are horizontal to each other and to the ground.

Not sure how the upper would last after being put together.
 True baller shoes.  I hope they have pull tabs inside.

It's much more entertaining to read tumblr posts that market articles of clothing as "bespoke". While mundane details about shoemaking as a craft fulfills some intellectual curious minds, they make poor entertainments. And you are very right. Making shoes and making money are two separate businesses. Thus a few renowned shoemakers sold their workshop or their RTW brands.
Technical manual writing is wholly different writing style than romanticized fictions. And the latter will unfortunately attract much wider audiences.
The less you know about shoemaking the better you will be able to write about shoemaking. Romanticized fictions.
Camera angle can create optical illusions.
