    Hi! These are really amazing!!! I was wanting to make a pair as I do a lot of leather work and I was wondering if you had more details in how to make these and what supplies you used? Thanks!!

      Hi Mike,
      I buy vintage lasts on eBay or Etsy, but you can also find new ones although a lot more expensive. I have a few links I could send you, depending on where you are, Europe or the US?

      Hi Mai,
      I’m in the process of writing a new eBook on shoemaking, it will have pattern making in it, please check back some time in spring 2019 or subscribe to my blog (in the sidebar), I will announce it here when I’ve finished it. Unfortunately, pattern making is a bit too complex to put into a few sentences.
      All the best

      Hi, there is Bespoke Shoemaking – Handmade Footwear by Tim Skyrme, it’s expensive but the only one I know of. I’m also writing a book on derby shoe and boot making but I might still be some time …
