Behind the scenes video: Oak Street Bootmakers

When Oak Street Bootmakers owner George Vlagos was in college, he couldn’t find a high-quality, handsewn shoe made in America that he liked or could afford. So like a good cobbler’s son, he went about making his own. He sourced leather from legendary Chicago tannery Horween, picked up a batch of Vibram Christy soles, and headed to Maine to find the last of the great handsewers. Common Machine braved the icy wilds of Nothern Maine to document Oak Street’s shoemaking process.
