fantastic video's and as a non shoe repairing person a real insight into the way shoes are put together and are crafted. Top class work by a true craftsman at the top of his trade. Thank you for sharing these with us

Marcell, good work.

A question - Who makes the upper for you?

Is it also made in Hungary?

 

watch the video again he made it himself :roll:

 

 

:roll: :roll: :roll:

 

Correct me if I'm wrong, but i cant see Marcell do any closing work on the videos ( stitching the upper together). Marcell is a Shoemaker and not ( i think ) a closer. There are four categories of craftsmen involved in making a shoe -

 

A Last maker, do the last.

A Clicker, cuts all the pieces out.

A Closer, stitch all the upper parts together,

 

And a Shoemaker, who puts everything together.

(this is what Marcell do on the video)

 

Some Shoemakers, not many, have the skill to do it all.

Maybe Marcell is one of them, i don't now.....

Foot Measure/Last Maker

Pattern maker/Cutter/(Clicker)

Closer

Assemble/Make

Finish

Sell

I believe Marcell does them all,

 

sometimes last making is not required as I use Masking or Gaffer type tape to cover the foot then use universal lasts, although it is more difficult to get the toe stiffeners lasted to a decent shape.

Yes, they are made in Hungary. I have a designer, who organise the upper making, but soon I will employ someone who will sew them for "Koronya Shoes" - my company.

 

...

 

Oh, I just recognised a question: yes, I can design and make the upper also, but I am not half effective in it than my collague, so I focus on shoemaker's job. BTW I still design may uppers, because it is more simple than explain to someone.

And a good news: I plan to make a video about last-making, and upper-making also. I don't know when it will be finished.
