If you are asking yourself, Should I go to shoe school? The answer is Yes!
Are you looking for a shoe making school near you? It can be hard to find a shoe school, but if you look hard you can find one. There are school schools in Portland, New York, Los Angeles, London, and now in the Era of Covid-19 many more online school schools. Outside the USA there are many great shoemaking schools. While the USA based shoe schools are more weekend or night courses, the European school schools such as the Astoria school tend to be full-term footwear certificate courses.
We have pulled together a list of school schools that focus on shoemaking and shoe design. You will need to find a school that suits your study plan. The small programs are more focused on a particular shoemaking skill, such and a boot making school or a fashion design school or a sneaker design program.
