Two film teams, from The Hanger Project and Saphir Medaille d’Or, were on site during the London Super Trunk Show and followed the contests with their cameras. Here several films from the world championships in shoe shining, shoe patina and shoemaking.

 

You may see it as sort of a teaser for those of you who are waiting for the large article with all the contest shoes from the World Championships in Shoemaking. Since I’ve been swamped with work the past weeks I haven’t had the time to finish it yet (takes a lot of time to put together), but next week it will finally be ready. Until then, enjoy the moving entertainment below:

 

 

Kirby Allison has also done interviews with some of the contestants in the world champs in shoemaking, Daniel Wegan, Victor Vulpe and Louis Lampertsdörfer, you may view these on the Hanger Project’s Youtube channel.

 

 

The films and more are found on Saphir Medaille d’Or’s new website.
