Question from Terry O.
Are these men and women's shoes?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Basil! Intro class is a theory class and won’t be making shoes. It’s talking about the construction of shoes and components and steps and lastly, you measure your feet, to know what size lasts to use for your project. Both men and women's shoes will be discussed. Hope this helps!

Really bad. We just measured our feet. They should've given a better overview of the shoe making process
Shoemaking #001: Introduction
Reviewed by Suna A. on 7/24/2017
I attended the class with much enthusiasm and excitement to learn the initial processes or at least thinking that goes into shoemaking but I left somewhat dismayed as the only thing of value I learned in an hour and a half was how to measure my feet. I would recommend that perhaps more thought is put into introducing the concepts of shoe making with samples that are set up on the table for students to see instead of watching the instructor looking for misplaced items. The instructor Keiko is really sweet but I'm used to more structure and valuable information being shared in a course I pay for, not waiting and wondering.
