5.0 out of 5 stars Useful, practical and collective item 25 Mar 2011
By Florrie
I work at Prescott & Mackay, the footwear and fashion accessory design school in London. One of the tutors who teaches bespoke shoemaking likes this book very much and he recommended it to me when I wanted to further my skills in shoemaking.

The book starts from describing the structure of human feet, the material of shoe last, to many, many details and wonderful photos of every step of making men's shoes. It's a book so informative to anyone who loves shoes and wants to know how shoes are made, whether he/she is a keen craft hobbyist or a professional footwear designer/maker.

if like myself you have developed an interest in shoe making, and grope around trying to find information on the tools and materials and processes involved, then look no further. This book is fabulous. beautiful pictures and illustrations, all aspects of shoe making thoroughly covered in an engrossing way. a real pleasure to read, quality speaks for itself and this book oozes it. excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handmade Shoes for Men 26 Jan 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my daughter who is preparing to study shoe design at uni. It's a thoroughly informative book, the information, photographs and diagrams are really useful - right down to the detailed skeleton of the feet. My daughter has been using it for inspiration and reference, and says she wouldn't be without it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gylls Review 25 May 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Sebastian Tarek, a shoemaker, suggested I buy it when I was on one of the courses he teaches at Prescott & McKay. Although I mainly am only interested in womens's shoes, I found this book fansinating - it is packed with so much useful information and brilliant photographs - It is a truly good buy.
