Smile Learn to make boots?

Hi everybody! Growing up, I spent a large amount of my youth speed skating, until I outgrew my boots, and my family didn't have enough to buy me another pair. Now that I'm older and into entrepreneurial ventures. I'd like to do one that was a part of my youth, and I always loved speed skating! I want to start a business around skating :-)

I have boot designs in my mind, however, I was wondering if there were any resources on learning to make boots? I'd love to hear some insight, from anyone, on the skating business, boot making, etc... I'm planning on purchasing some boots when I come back from China, and get back into the rink.

There is a YouTube video "how it's made" that shows the basics.

However the art/skill for making custom boots and adjusting the moulds so they the boots work is a tightly held secret and I doubt that any bootmakers will part with the info.

Buying up used boots and pulling them apart to see how they are put together and making boots for yourself and mates to give feedback is the way forward.
