Reporter: Francis Waplinger | Course: Shoe Making Course
Unfortunately, this week I had to take two steps backwards with my boots. On four of the stitches in the welting, I placed them too far on the outside of the shoe, thus compromising the integrity of the welt. So this image shows a progress shot of me taking the welting off. Once the welting and thread is fully removed, I will try the welting for a second time. The good news is, usually if there is a mistake made in the shoemaking process there is usually a remedy for it that does not compromise the finished shoe.
