@JBFCustoms maximized his stay at the BKSS studios by learning handwelting. Jake brought his uppers, immaculately stitched up. With @yuji_nyc he learned how to cut and form the midsoles, prepare the welt, make the thread, stitch up the welts. All by hand. No grinder. Using Japanese knives different from knives he was used to. It was such fun few weeks to see the shoes come to life. Here are a few photos to share.
