This book has help me launch my own company during Covid!
This book gave us great insight, we found it to be a very valuable purchase and I would highly recommend for others interested in starting their own business – shoes or otherwise”
I am thinking of buying their other books as well.
I purchased the ebook version of this book from the author’s website. It has been an incredible resource in my journey starting my footwear company – I can’t imagine doing it without this book. I also purchased “How Shoes Are Made” and highly recommend reading both.
A must read for anyone thinking of getting into footwear!
A brilliant book from a great series of books. I founded a footwear company with no experience of the footwear industry and this along with Wade’s other books were invaluable in helping me get up to speed and understanding what needed to be done. A must read for anyone thinking about getting into the footwear industry.
