1570s Shoes after a hiatus…

Thursday, March 28th, 2013
Apologies for the lack of productivity – I just recently purchased a new house, and that ended up sucking up all of the creative energy for a while. But, now that it’s reasonably sorted out, please see a new pair of shoes in a fantastic green. Welted 1570 shoes with no heel lift, slashes and pinks, a whipped in heel-stiffener and wool sock. Although you cannot see it well in the picture, I did not dye the sole edges but instead simply burnished them to a mirror polish. I do like the way it looks, and we do not really have much evidence for dyeing the sole edge anyhow. Sarah Juniper also does not dye her sole edges, so I’m happy to take a clue from that.
