This is my first post on this forum so I'm looking forward to seeing what others are doing and sharing my own experiences with bespoke footwear!
These are my first attempt at making a bespoke pair of shoes with no previous experience of shoe/leather work. Everything is made from scratch apart from the fake welt as I only had 15 days to make them.
Unfortunately I only had a few choices of last shapes and this one was the closest (but by no means perfect) option. I think it has given them an unfortunate "bowling shoe" aesthetic.
I'm currently looking for further training or apprenticeships so would appreciate any info or experiences any makers on here have had with the industry.
Look forward to your thoughts and comments!
