・The way we cut the paper pattern can affect greatly the shoe design, so it is important to pay attention in the process.
・It’s also important to cut out from the pattern only the leather that we are actually going to use, and to juxtapose each part side by side.

・In the case of Goodyear stitching, it becomes essential to sew the insole and upper with the thin leather used on the stitching edges at the same time.

・Students thin down the extremities and put a sewing needle.

・Then, they apply pine resin to the whole surface of the thread, as it makes it more resistant and waterproof.

・Then, let’s insert the toe core inside the shoe extremity and in this way we make it stronger and prevent that the shoe would get out of shape.

・After inserting the toe core, we turn the shoe and while hammering the nails in the surface, we proceed with the lasting.

・If we want to add garnish on the toe part, this requires some time because we have to: first last the upper on the shoetree, then once drawn the design on it, we remove it and punch holes.

・Then, we polish the side of the shoe, where we attached the leather to the sole
・It’s also important to imagine the finished shape with different usage of colors. In fact, even with the same design, the final effect can be extremely different just changing the combination of tones.
