If you make three pairs of shoes following the directions and using the patterns in this book, you will have the knowledge you need for making an unlimited number of styles of shoes, from a range of ecological materials. The three styles are a center-seam shoe, a one-piece flat, and a derby/vellie.

All of the recommended materials are either repurposed leather, heavy fabric or felt, and the contact cement is non-toxic. In a world in which so many shoe brands are marketing their “green” qualities, none of them can compete with shoes that you make yourself from ecological materials. I believe “locally-made” shoes will be in demand and I hope to encourage people to start shoemaking businesses.
