Dan Freeman’s Leatherwork
Dan Freeman learned to make shoes over 30 years ago in New Orleans. Now he practices his art in a small shop in downtown Middlebury. Dan custom makes all types of shoes including dress, sneakers and boat shoes but is best known for his equestrian and hiking boots. For every shoe, Dan creates a custom form modeled after the foot of a customer. Dan keeps all of these customers’ forms in the back for future use.
