Full Spectrum Lasted Shoemaking Series

Series Description:   Shoemaking is an exacting art form.  We want you to get the best instruction for your design that we can give.  That’s why you’ll be working on only one shoe.  Once you accomplish this series and have a chance to practice your skills, we’ll give you an opportunity to make a full pair from scratch.
