My Adventure in DIY bespoke shoemaking

post #1 of 80
Thread Starter 
Hello there,

I would like to present my passion, my hobby. I always liked shoes and i recently decided to make myself my own pair of bespoke shoes.
I didn't follow any class, i have just spend hours on the web to find informations. I bought tools and leather and i made the job.
This is the final result of my first pair and i already plan to make an other one.



If you are interested in seeing all the process you can have a look on my blog, on the link below. It is in French but there is a translation tool.

Sorry about my poor English, if you have any question i will do my best to answer.
I am not a professional shoemaker (i have nothing to sell), i am just an amateur who want to share his passion.

That is top notch! Any chance of an English translation? Looks like an interesting read!

Holy S*@t. Those are amazing. You have now inspired me to try. I am always been good with my hands, and I was going to wait until I graduated law school. I am going to start this fall.

Those are incredible for your first pair.

Can you post some more finished pics?

Thank you. Yes indeed, actually my influence was a mix in between Corthay Arca and Prince of Wales Derby from Dimitri Gomez and G&G for the sole
