  • A first-class book! I am very impressed by the detailed descriptions. I have never had such a well-written reference book in my hands. I really appreciate it and am very glad to have my own copy. I hope the next installment comes soon.

    OSM László Urbán – Emmerich am Rhein / Deutschland
  • Passing on knowledge and not keeping it to one’s self is very valuable, especially for the younger generation in our craft. The book provides detailed background knowledge and explains step by step how to make the different types of uppers. The book is fantastic and I have also heard from other shoemakers that they also really appreciate the book.

    Alexander Fröhlich – German-French bespoke shoemaker
  • Finally a technical book that deserves the name! It has a sensible and clear structure. The topics are well explained but not bound up with excessive detail. Each step is explained in a usable and accessible way. The illustrations are brilliant! You can feel the enthusiasm of the authors on every page.

    OSM Clemens Hagen – Nagano / Japan
  • A monumental work! It is impressive how comprehensively the authors have approached the subject.

    OSM Christian Härdi – Schöftland / Switzerland
  • A fantastic work whose true greatness can only be appreciated by those who have read it. It makes one crave for even more.

    OSM Bernd Franke – Bad Wildungen / Germany
  • Although we are all looking forward to the English translation arriving in our workshop, here at Bill Bird Shoes in the UK, it will be a confirmation rather than an addition to what we have already learned and put into our practice through the wonderfully illustrated German edition.

    Bespoke Orthopaedic Shoemaker William Robert Bird – Moreton In Marsh / England
  • I am delighted that the authors have taken the time and effort to write so extensively on this subject. I don’t think any reader can comprehend the amount of work that goes into such a work. This book is a true milestone for the craft.

    OSM Martin Kreitmayr – Hessing Foundation in Augsburg / Germany
  • You have managed to produce a superlative work! I can truly recommend it to everyone.

    OSM Katja Streckhardt, lecturer for uppermaking at the Orthopaedic Shoe Technology Training Centre Southwest (BOSS) / Germany
