Seong-su Handmade Shoe Street - Seoul, South Korea
If there’s one thing that I love, it’s a great pair of shoes!
So visiting the Seong-su handmade shoe street was a special experience for me. We took a moment to visit a small class where students were learning how to make shoes. Students in the class can learn how to make shoes for free, as long as they pay for their own materials that will be used to make them. There are only a few students in the class because it is difficult to get into the school.
I believe that these students will be the best in the business since the school is specialized in this particular skill! Although handmade shoes are not as popular as they once were in Seoondong-gu, there’s no denying the quality of the workmanship it takes to make them. Until then, I never really thought about the small details that go into creating and designing a shoe. Just like Understand Avenue, this area of Seongdong-gu gives citizens an opportunity to be creative!
