Up-to-date report from one of our students!
Course: Shoe Making
・Provisional shoe is made using felt sheets. (Picture left)
・This pair of adhesive method shoes has distinctive piled-up heels. (Picture center)
・Since it is important to keep the knife sharp all the times, students sharpen it using sandpapers. (Picture right)
・Adhesive welt shoes do not look much different from the Goodyear stitch shoes. (Picture center)
・Permanent shoe lasting is more difficult than provisional one because a core is inserted into the heel and toe part. (Picture right)
・Shoe lasting at the toe part is done carefully as it affects pulling on the sides, the front and the back, which will change the shape of the shoe. (Picture left)
・Students can ask the instructor’s support, whenever they have questions about the shoe design and procedures. (Pictures center)
