Experiment

Posted by on February 1, 2011 in Pictures, Words | 4 comments

This pair of boots is different to our usual work and is a prototype for an upcoming project. It is an unlined boot made from very thick cow hide. The rand, sole & heel are pegged down with wooden pegs instead of being stitched together. All this means that the boots were constructed in 2-3 days instead of the usual 5-6. server hosting info I am currently wearing them daily to find out how well they will hold together.

  1. This experiment of yours…these divine boots. Do you perchance think you might experiment making a pair for a lass?
    They are beautiful : )
    As is the cafe. Thank you so much for such a gorgeous space.

  2. I have been looking for a set of boots very much like the experimental boot. I dislike pointed footwear and have a broad foot and prefer a rounded toe. I had a similar set of boots years ago and replaced the soles 3 times but finally lost them when my feet grew another size and a half.

  3. Hi Douglas, we are more than happy to recreate your old boots for your current sized feet. Please drop by the studio at Captains of Industry for a consultation.
