Shoemaking: Internal Stitchdown Workboots

Course Overview

It’s hard to imagine a more functional and necessary piece of footwear than a solid workboot—and one that is custom-fit to your foot? What more could you ask for really? We will begin by making a casting of your foot and then move on to patterning and leather selection, cutting and skiving, seaming and assembly. We'll use industrial sewing machines--some sewing experience would be helpful but is not necessary. Once the upper and sole are attached we move on to closure and finishing and finally attaching and trimming the vibram outsole. Suitable for adventures of all sorts, these boots are full of possibility (rumor has it, you can even wear them skiing).
