The Judging Criteria

Here are some of the shoe’s aspects that we are going to focus on as judges, in order of importance:

  • Nails down the ncenter of the stock.
  • No nail behind the widest part of the shoe.
  • Nail fit.
  • Width of shoe.
  • Width of bar (that it fits into the Golden Mean).
  • Length of shoe.
  • The flatness of the shoe.

exercise are at americanfarriers.com/summitshoe.
