    Finally, a decent book on shoemaking, August 14, 2002

    This review is from: Handmade Shoes for Men (Hardcover)

    Information on shoemaking is getting difficult to find. I bought this book hoping I could learn how nice shoes are made. I was very pleased with what I learned from this book. One step further into the details, however, would have made this book the last word on the subject.

    If you have a little imagination, however, it is not too hard to fill in the details. Actually, since the author is a very respected Hungarian shoemaker, I can imagine it being a difficult decision on where to draw the line between “details” and “wordiness.” Do you have to talk about glue viscosity (he does) or glue recipes (he doesn’t, “shop secrets”). Plenty of information is included and hundreds of excellent photos make it easy to imagine yourself right alongside a master craftsman.

    Topics include:

    * taking measurements
    * anatomy
    * shoe sizes
    * history and making of lasts
    * characteristics of different styles of men’s dress shoes
    * design of the pattern (the gist of it, anyway)
    * leather tanning processes
    * characteristics of different leathers
    * clicking, brogueing, stitching and reinforcing of uppers
    * lasting the shoe (stretching the upper around the last)
    * lots of detail on tacking and stitching during the lasting process
    * welting
    * soling (including the shank and cork filler)
    * building the heel
    * ornamentation and finishing
    * proper shoe care
    * short bios on the greatest workshops in Europe and America

    Needless to say, I learned alot. I had no idea top-end shoes use wooden pegs to hold the heels on or that broken glass and bones are common tools in the trade. This is a very nice addition to my library.

    Pretty good book, May 10, 2000

    This review is from: Handmade Shoes for Men (Hardcover)

    A 20th century “how to” in the manner of old-time works by Rees, Leno, Devlin , and so forth. This work examines first the history and basic technology of handmade shoemaking, with gorgeous photographs, and fairly clear text (particularly considering that it’s a translation). It then takes a quick trot through the crème of the big-name shoemaking firms still in operation today, and concludes with a heartfelt tribute to shoemaking as an art form. As an overview of the trade, this work is more than adequate, although for someone not engrossed in the topic, the jumping back and forth between topics can be a little distracting. The author’s knowledge of shoemaking history is fairly standard, with many of the traditional old shoemaking chestnuts reappearing here. The author’s discussion of techniques is a trifle problematical, in that he does not indicate the universality of the techniques and tools (for example, not all handmade shoemakers use needles or wax made by the recipe shown) – but this is a common failing in shoemaking texts,and certainly nothing to count against the text. Having gotten down this far, you are likely wondering why I gave the book this high a marking if I was this critical of it – it’s the pictures. The text could be gibberish and the pictures would make it worth the price. The text is pretty good, which makes it more than worth the price.
