Sneaker Kits come with soles, insoles, thread and a needle. You’ll need leather from us or another source for your tops, though some students have used canvas or felt. Make sure to watch the video at the bottom of this page.
Steps for Sneaker Making:
- Order the soles in your size, we usually can ship same day if not the next. Order Now.
- Order leather and punch if needed
- Download the file for the size you selected. This new version has a little wider platform, better for American feet.
- Make sure to print at 100% (Actual size). For patterns larger than size 43, you may need to print on 8.5 x 14″ paper or the pattern will reduce to fit the paper (at least that’s what happens on our printer)
You can see below that there are many ways to cut the patterns to suit yourself. Essentially, you will cut out your leather, punch all the holes in the pattern and lace your sneaker tops onto the sole. The soles are pre-punched but need to be poked through before stitching. The results are so rewarding!
