The 10-12 day Traditional bespoke Boot Course is one of our most popular courses we offer. 

It takes slightly longer then the bespoke shoe course due to a boots design. You will design and learn the traditional techniques of making your own boot — chelsea boot, side zip biker boot,  a derby hiking boot... it is all possible!

Please note: if you are looking to make a boot knee high or above please specify when booking. It will require an extra 1-2 days for fitting and measurement alterations.
