Are you sick of overpriced shoes or want some that show off more of your own personality? You can make your own with Mary Wales Loomis’ tutorial. Mary has been making her own shoes for years. From the site, “I have always designed and made clothes, and occasionally hats and bags. One day, I looked at my shoes and wondered what was inside them. So I tore a pair of shoes apart with a hammer, screwdriver, and pliers. When I looked at the parts, I realized I could duplicate them.” She also has a book out on shoemaking. [ via ] Link.

    I think this is awesome. There seems to be a real trend to making your own shoes. I actually make all my son’s shoes; they are soft-sole leather shoes in a similar style to Robeez. Check them out at http://www.makethemyourself.com/shoes.html.
