Shoemaking: Modern Turn Shoe

Course Overview

Inspired by centuries of shoe design, the modern turn shoe is an eminently practical and fashionable piece of footwear. From the city streets to wilderness survival, these shoes have been road-tested and found to be comfortable and durable. The uppers are American bison, the soles are made of heavy oil tanned latigo with an outer coating of recycled ground truck tire dust mixed with barge cement. As with all Jason’s courses, the process starts with a casting of your foot and moves onto patterning & leather selection, cutting and skiving, stitching and assembly. Then, some time at the industrial walking foot sewing machines to attach the upper and the sole, followed by turning, hammering, closure, and finishing. Leave with the best pair of shoes you’ve ever owned.
