Salvatore Ferragamo Shoemaking

Salvatore Ferragamo: The Art of Shoemaking

What a privilege it was to be invited to witness an Italian craftsman, Giuliano, construct Salvatore Ferragamo shoes from start to finish, and there is a reason why shoes from luxury brands cost a month’s salary.
The quality and workmanship are unbeatable, coupled with the sturdiness of the shoes (no matter how high and thin the heels are)

Most, if not all, shows from luxury brands are handmade by shoemakers.

The amount of meticulous work that goes into each pair of shoes is astounding, from cutting and stitching the leather, wrapping them around the lasts (wooden moulds of feet), applying the soles and nailing them in, and applying the signature Vara bow, all using only a few tools.
Truly a work of art.
