I sometimes wonder why people don't wear a different sort of shoe on either foot. It would make rotation a bit more interesting. :happy:

Crosspost from the bespoke shoe thread: I spent last week at Swedish bespoke maker Janne Melkersson (he was active here on SF a couple of years ago, probably known for some of you) for a one week course in shoemaking. You get to follow his work on a pair of shoes for you, and also try some of the steps. His courses are a bit special from many other shoemaking courses, you are alone, and you follow and get to learn the whole process from measuring, lastmaking, pattern making, clicking, upper making, lasting, making and finishing. You get to keep the lasts that you make, and are allowed to copy all of his patterns, you can order his lasts in other sizes from a lastmaker in Sweden etc, so many start making their own shoes just a few weeks after they've visited him. I visited mostly to see how it's done, not to really learn doing it, and it was very interesting and knowledgeable. Also interesting to try doing some of the steps. It's a pretty tight schedule to do a pair of shoes in five days, so he doesn't have time for his most refined work, but the shoes turned out really great I think. We made them in Saint Crispin Babycalf, interesting leather especially how it comes alive when burnishing it, really smooth to touch, but also pretty fragile and hard to work with.

 

Here's a bunch of pics, first some of the process making them:

For those interested to see and read more I've made two long blog posts about the process on my blog, here's part 1 and part 2. You can translate it using the translation tool on the blog to make it understandable.
