The Deal

  • $249 for one make-your-own-shoes course ($575 value)

In 15 hours or less, Olivier Rabbath shows students how to make their very own pair of shoes. Students begin by drawing their own pattern, customized to their personal preferences. They will then cut the leather, glue, stitch and manufacture the sole from scratch. At the end of the course, everyone will be able to walk out in their handmade pair of shoes.

How To Make Boots From Your Garage

Olivier Rabbath of How To Make Boots From Your Garage outfits his students with both the knowledge and skills to create footwear that help them comfortably walk about town in style. An experienced shoemaker who was included in the 2012 Smithsonian Craft2Wear exhibit, he leads a number of production classes that show students how to create their own pairs of boots, slippers, or shoes from leather and other materials. His goal for each class is to make his students so efficient in the footwear-creation process that they can stop buying shoes from retailers or even become skilled enough to earn a steady living and eventually quit their jobs fighting crime at night. When not hosting classes, Olivier's workspace serves as a full shoe-production facility for himself and other professionals.
