Shoes and Craft

A shoemaker's blog about shoemaking

mule

a mule. I bought many cheap Asian home footwear, but no one of them can be used more than a few months (sometimes even weeks), and all of them are made from full synthetic materials, causing swetting feet.. So I asked myself: I am a shoemaker, why I don’t make these things for myself? I bought a piece of lamb leather with fur on, and used the pieces of leather – left from other works and designed a pair of mules. OK, it is a but exaggerate to call it design – so I found out how to make footwear from it… and I did it. I made it symmetrical (no left, no right), and soft. A bit more heavy than a cheap Chinese version, but it just shows, that there are real materials in it: leather, fur, cork.. and a bit of handwork.
