Made in Portland, Oregon
I learned to make shoes from great craftsmen in the Netherlands and the United States.My goal is to continue the European tradition of making shoes for individuals based on their actual feet using the best available materials.
There are many options for custom shoes. Here is a sampling of styles that I have made for clients.
Learn about shoes and all of their pieces. Take a class, explore techniques, ask questions, or arrange a seminar.
I prefer to make shoes with vegetable tanned leather. I also use composites, rubber, and various low- and high-tech materials from cork to carbon fiber.
