Materials used for footwear?

I have a serious inclination towards footwear design…Have been working on sketching and conceptualisation day n night…
Could anyone of u suggest some sources of information which will provide me with a lot of knowledge regarding the materials used for shoes.??


Come on now bro, there are tons of threads in here that give you information in regards to your question. Do a bit more research, thoroughly browse older postings, take a look at others call outs as to what they have listed for materials used or google search terms and materials. Start with cutting in half a few pairs of old shoes from goodwill, become a footwear surgeon (lol). I believe that Kuchinsky or D’Tulls have posted a few URL’s of books that would help.
