Up-to-date report from one of our students!
Course: Shoe Making
・It’s important to cut the parts, keeping in mind the way the leather tends to stretch (photo on the left)
・To realize a Brogueing decoration on the toe cap, students last the shoe and make sure that it’s been performed in the correct position (central and right photo)
・Students attach the 5mm-thick heel, made by several layers of leather built up together (photo on the left)
・ Before placing the last layer, students secure the heel by hammering some nails inside it. (Central photo)
・The shoes are nearly completed (photo on the right)
・The filler used for the Goodyear welt, is about 6-mm width and its height roughly corresponds to half of the outsole surface
(photo on the left)
・Once created the filler, students open up holes in order to perform the stitching (central photo)
・Then, students draw a line to make visible the position of the holes. (photo on the right)
