Do you remember rainy days in elementary school? In between solving word searches and playing heads-up seven-up, an aide would wheel a film projector into the classroom. The lights would go out, the reel would click and spin, and you'd get to watch a 25-year old film about how crayons are made. It was glorious.
If that childhood memory resonates with you, then you should take a look at this clip from Ospop, the China-based shoe company that makes and sells Tianlang Trainers (we wrote about them in GOOD 008), which are modeled after the traditional shoes of Chinese laborers. Feast your eyes on this start-to-finish look at precisely how these shoes are made (and quietly mourn the fact that, unlike the projector, YouTube probably won't ever burst into flames midway through a less engaging clip).
