・For adhesive method pumps, students even out the sole surface using a file before gluing on the outsole. Although inserting cork is not common for the adhesive method, big unevenness can be adjusted by gluing on materials such as leather. (left photo)
・Students draw the shape of metal parts when designing shoes with a belt. (central photo)
・Just like Goodyear stitching shoe, a groove needs to be made on the sole surface of a hand-sewn McKay stitching shoe. (right photo)
