meet the team behind i can make shoes

I Can Make Shoes is a unique shoemaking school which has been paving the way with teaching innovative shoemaking techniques for over a decade.



The original I Can Make Shoes'er - Amanda founded the company back in 2010. As a native Aussie, Amanda did her footwear training in Sydney, Australia. It was when she moved to London that she realised it was really difficult to make shoes without all the machinery she was taught to use. She set out to develop a shoemaking process that makes the craft accessible for people to do from home and she’s been spreading the love of shoemaking ever since.



Victoria graduated with a BA in Footwear Design and Development at Cordwainers, London College of Fashion. Her graduate collection focused on the importance of comfort and practicality whilst also being stylish. She went on design shoes at Alexander McQueen, developed footwear for Lacoste before starting her own conscious shoe brand - Vandrelaar.
