    Hello! I, am hereditary, shoe businesses foreman from Russia. My grandfather and uncle engaged in tailoring of the footwear. And my mum of the awl clothes to order. I, more than 30 years study and practice tailoring of the footwear to order, with preservation of all fineness and methods of shoe craft which was in the middle of 20 centuries. Unfortunately many methods, in view of their complexity, are simplified or forgot. I frequently sew footwear top manually without application of sewing machines.
    Here are some my works:

    Only at such outline of preparation стельки for welt sewing, best footwear elastic is reached. Of course such outline requires from the foreman a big accuracy and high-qualification. Therefore she was simplified.

    That's a great finish you've got on that heel stack, Valeriy. Would you share your methods for getting such a mirror shine? (here, in PM, or on the CC) --

    Why the hollow, cork filled heels?

    All hello! One of man's shoes obligatory by attribute to order is the leather type-setting heel, which at all the beauty heavy and rigid. The discomfort from rigidity of such heel almost has an effect at once, if on you for 40. During long-term work and personal experience, I came to a conclusion that at production of a type-setting heel its internal part can be cut out and will be filled with a detail from a pith tree. The footwear in this case is considerably facilitated. But the most important, is reached the highest comfort when using a type-setting heel.

    The handbag is made of a genuine leather. All the seams are made by hand without using a sewing-machine. The handles are sewn like it was on the famouse handbag Birkin by Hermes, besides they looks like a leather steering wheel which is used to be in the expensive cars. And the most difficult items are formed molded corners.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    If on the previous photos of red low shoes the heel was made of a pith tree and will fit skin, on these photos I applied a hollow type-setting heel with an insert from a pith tree.
