Trying to get a job in footwear industry

How Shoes are Made: Reviews and Comments
★★★★☆
I am currently a college student in South Korea, trying to get a job in footwear industry. I am also taking classes at school from a professor who has more than 25 years of career in the industry. I have found your websites doing assignments that he gave us, and ended up buying this. The book seems pretty useful so far since there are many pictures,(we students simply don’t get many chances to see what’s really going on in the field) and also the book seems contain basically most of things we learn at school.

I really learned a lot from How to Start Your Own Shoe Company and enjoyed following the two fictitious companies. The photos, charts and infographics are excellent. A great companion book to How Shoes are Made. I would recommend it to anyone interested in starting a business as it details the steps from initial design all the way to retail sales and marketing.

Recommend Shoe Material Design Guide

How Shoes are Made: Reviews and Comments
★★★★★
For someone like me who has never designed a single shoe, it's very clear and easy to understand. The pictures and how they are labelled make it very engaging, I could easily see it being used a textbook in a shoe making curriculum. All in all, very educational. Would recommend to anyone who wants to learn about shoe-making

Love the shoe dissection!

How Shoes are Made: Reviews and Comments
★★★★★
I am very happy with this purchase. I wish Shoe Material Design Guide was available to me 20 years ago when I was starting out in shoe design. Clear, well organized, great photos and the Shoe Dissection half of the book where the shoes are cut in half and the inside materials are called out is really well done, interesting, and helpful!
