What is a handmade shoe?


The difference between the real handmade and the fake one. This is one of the most difficult question. 

What is a handmade shoe? The definition can be subjective, but we have to start with it. Handmade usually doesn’t mean 100% handmade, in term of using machine sanders, skivers, sewing machines, machine produced parts. Entirely handmade doesn’t exist in that way, and even if we would made that… The quality would be… Let’s say “crafty”. On the other end of this line is the full machine produced shoe, when hand only come to picture when they control machine. So this is the scale, and somewhere we have to separate this to entirely handmade, semi-handmade and “so called handmade”.
