If you do make any, please tell us all about how it went.  I've been tempted to order that book for months.  I don't think I'd enjoy making shoes, but the thought of having shoes made to fit my exact foot is a very good thought indeed. 

That Year in Provence author once had a series of columns on wealthy people's luxuries and one of them was having handmade shoes made to his exact measurements.  He said that, cliche or not, it's like walking on air.  Ahhh, happy thought.  Of course those shoes would have been made from only the finest materials.  And, since he was having them made so he could write about the experience, I think his magazine paid for it; if not he should have been able to deduct the cost of the shoes from his taxes as a work-related expense.  Enjoy expensive things for free, and then get paid for writing a couple of pages describing the experiences.  Man, that must have been a tough job.

Hm, I'm tempted to request my library to buy that book (what can I say?  I have no income Wink)...  Definitely post any shoes from that book~!

so, has anyone actually tried making a pair of shoes? I want that book, but it'll be hard to fine in belgium and I seriously wonder if it's worth while! So has anyone had a go at it?

so. . . i was looking over the book and it is seriously close to these instructions (found on craftster, see we're just as good as she is)  i would say try out these instructions, and if you feel you want to try something more, buy the book, its not really that expensive.
