Up-to-date report from one of our students!
Course: Shoe Making
・After adhering a metal shank, students glue on a 3mm thick leather covering it.(Picture left)
・This student is sewing the side of Tirolese shoe with chain stitches.(Picture center)
・Outsole is adhered for this Norwegian-style shoe after the 2nd time sewing is done. Now it’s ready for the 3rd time sewing.(Picture right)
・The sewing on the side of Norwegian-style shoe is very important. Because the thickness of the thread and the size of stitches change how the shoe looks at the end, students needs to perform it carefully.(Picture left)
・This shoe has its plantar arch part made by McKay stitching, and the front half part made by Goodyear welt.(Picture center)
・A hard leather about 5mm thick is used to make an outsole. Students proceed with cutting as they check which section of a sheet of leather is suitable for making outsoles.(Picture right)
・When performing Norwegian chain stitches, students try not to twine threads in a wrong order. Omitting stitches around heels makes the finished product look neater.(Picture left)
・This student does not have many lessons left, so he is in a hurry making these adhesive method loafers.(Picture center)
