Double Monk Strap Shoes in Hand-dyed Roo with Emu Facing

Posted by on November 26, 2013 in Words |

My second pair for the NGV’s “Melbourne Now” exhibition.

These are a kind of whole cut double monk with a storm welt construction.

It was the first time I’d tried the storm welt which comes down the side of the shoe then out. I’m fairly happy with it though.

The facing under the strap is Emu leg. I had an Australia coat of arms theme going with this work.

These are made on our vintage american G’n’R last.
