Do you want to learn how to make shoe patterns? Do you know how to design a last for a high-heeled fashion shoe, sneaker, or dress shoe? In Footwear Pattern Making and Last Design, we will teach you the shoe last design process and detail the basic techniques of footwear pattern making.

Footwear Pattern Making and Last Design will show you how lasts are made, the shoe last design process, the hidden geometry, special features, functions, and size grading principles of lasts. You will see many different last designs and shapes for sneakers, trainers, high-heels, boots, and more.

This book covers the craft of footwear pattern making, including a step-by-step guide to patternmaking for beginners, and hundreds of color photos illustrating the patternmaking process. See and compare sample patterns for joggers, hi-top sneakers, high-heels, and many other shoes. Learn how to make a sneaker forme, patternmaking procedures, computer-aided design software for pattern making, and shoe pattern grading.

Pattern Cutting: Step by Step Patterns for Footwear.  Edited by Frank Jones. ISBN-10: 0955408601 ISBN-13: 978-0955408601

Pattern Cutting: Step by Step Patterns for Footwear can be hard to find but it’s out there. You may need to order from the UK. Both books, Footwear Pattern Making and Last Design and Pattern Cutting: Step by Step Patterns for Footwear, belong on your bookshelf!

I also like the books by the late George-Koleff. His book, Lastmaking, is worth owning. Again, these can be hard to find. There is another secret shoemaking treasure, All About Shoes and Techniques by Hans van der Elzen. These are great resources for shoemakers.
