Make The Shoes You Really want to make

There are 23 shoemaking courses, 18 footwear models that you can create following my shoemaking courses, but there is much more than that....

My focus is to give you the tools and skills to create any footwear, to work on your own creating variety of shoe designs and styles  

New Loafers Course, Dr.Martens Boots Course & Barefoot Shoes Courses are included in the 1 Year Shoemaking Program.

Philip is my student and a cobbler. He is working with shoes for 40 years but never made a pair until recently.  After couple of months and after finishing the basic footwear courses, Philip made his first English Welted Oxford Shoes.

In my Footwear Design Workshop, I will teach you how to combine different models and achieve best results in making your own designs.

Konstantin Success is Freedom in your craft

Konstantin took my full 1-year program and learned all the classic types, from simple ballets to English welted shoes. 

After finishing the program and taking my footwear design course, Konstantin is in the creative process of making Any type of shoes he wants. 

Just take a look at his first English Welted Shoes he made and right after the "Monk"shoes he made on his own. When I am talking about freedom I am talking about that. You learn the basics, get the knowledge and get the freedom to create any shoes,  and that is what he did.
