Shoemaking is the process of making footwear. Originally, shoes were made one at a time by hand. Traditional handicraft shoemaking has now been largely superseded in volume of shoes produced by industrial mass production of footwear, but not necessarily in quality, attention to detail, or craftsmanship.

Shoemakers or cordwainers (cobblers being, historically, those who repair shoes) may produce a range of footwear items, including shoes, boots, sandals, clogs and moccasins. Such items are generally made of leather, wood, rubber, plastic, jute or other plant material, and often consist of multiple parts for better durability of the sole, stitched to a leather upper.

  1. These are not Shoes. These are something else that will destroy your ankles, and back, bite your toes. Go for Hush Puppies, if you want Leather Shoes.

  2. where its the welt?? where is the Cork insole??? where is the leather midsole?? where is the shank?? why arent they stitching any welts to a leather midsole ????? The charm of a handmade custom shoe is lost if there are ignored… cheap shoe, cheap craftsmen…..

  3. Respect his craftsmanship, but the quality of those boots is shit. Might last half a winter at best. In Chicago's winter, they would fall the fuck apart.

  4. can you please contact me privately as i would like to discuss a business oportunity. thanks

  5. working conditions so bad, cost of shoes , don't know but craftsman ship is okay…may not last too long and comfort to wear would be an average too I feel.
