When you book your 5-day Shoe workshop we'll ask you to tell us which style you'd like to make. Your ideas can be very simple - to begin with at least! We spend the first day of your workshop editing and refining your design, (this basically means making a wonderful mess with all our lovely leathers). 

Oxford shoes and boots are a popular Shoe School style! Oxford shoes and boots are characterised by the side panels (quarters) which underneath the forepart (vamp). 

If you google search 'Oxford shoe / boot' you'll be rewarded with lots of inspirational examples! Our INSTAGRAM is also a great place to look for examples.
