Up-to-date report from one of our students!
Course: Shoe Making
・Compared to the closed-laced shoe, the open-laced one is composed by more parts, so let’s pay particular attention during the cutting
・As for the other types of shoe, we thinly skim the overlapped leather
・Also in the belt model, we put a reinforcement in the internal part where there is the clasp
・This 2nd-year student is making a “Tirolese” stitching style of shoe
・We sew a thin type of leather on the shoe side, then attach the sole and sew it
・With a special needle called “Regina” we punch holes and through the thread we sew the welt to the sole
・The distance between the holes has to be just of few millimeters so it’s a task that requires some time
・As for the pumps, we reinforce the opening part applying a tape to limit the leather natural stretching process.
・We sew together the internal and eternal part and proceed with the lasting
・Finally, we check whether the lasting correspond to our initial image of the shoe.
