This amazing 255 page, hardcover crafting guide details every single step that goes in to handcrafting two different styles of men's lasted shoes - oxford and derby.  Even if you don't have aspirations to delve in to the world of handcrafted footwear, you'll enjoy the fascinating insight to the process and techniques that belong to a leathercraft discipline that most know very little about.  An excellent addition to every crafter's library, this is book is also a great coffee table conversation starter.

Topics covered include:

  • Pattern Making
  • Upper Construction
  • Lasting
  • Soleing 
  • Finishing

Just like all of the Studio Tac books we offer, while it is still in its original Japanese format, the photos convey just about everything you need to know in order to complete the step.  We've found that using the Google Translate phone app helps fill in the blanks when pointed at the text in the book.
