I am SO excited for this collaboration with @cococlemshop for our ‘Get Inspired’ series!
'Get Inspired' is a series of shoe design collaborations with the intention to inspire our community to unlock different creative practices and apply them to shoes.
@cococlemshop is an eco friendly swimwear brand that seeks to create wearable art for a wide variety of body types and gender expressions. Coco Clem, AKA, Courtney Rivenbark illustrates exclusive fabric designs from scratch to make beautiful swimwear sets that are equally body friendly and fun!
When figuring out how best to put the shoes together, we figured what better way to accentuate Coco Clem’s stunning design than to make a pair of matching pool sliders, brilliant, right?!
It makes me so happy when two completely different creative practices can come together and form a totally unique pair of shoes, I think it’s so rewarding for both sides of the collaboration to come away with something new and inspiring. I’m so so excited to share other maker collabs we’ve got coming up too.
I hope this project inspires you to think outside the box when creating your shoe designs, think about other hobbies or interests that you have and imagine ways you can incorporate them into your designs!

learn shoemaking for yourself
I created a free 40-minute online course called 'Introduction to Shoemaking' to show how easy home shoemaking can be and to give you a little taste of what I Can Make Shoes is all about. SIGN UP HERE for instant access.
If you are wanting to dive a little deeper into the world of home shoemaking, my online Footwear Masterclass is one of the most popular shoemaking courses in the world!! 🌍 (Casual brag! lol)
The course covers how to make shoes from scratch including heels, flats, boots, sneakers, sandals, and more. The thing that really sets this course apart from others is that it's specifically designed for total beginners and requires very little in the way of tools & equipment, there's even a bonus module on how to start your own shoe brand. To make getting started even easier, the course comes with a FREE Shoemaking Starter Kit, delivered to your door, anywhere in the world! 🌍
We are a tight community and regularly limit our intake to ensure the best experience for our students - so if our enrolment is closed I would recommend you sign up for our FREE Introduction to Shoemaking course while you wait.
Happy Shoemaking, Amanda xx
