New shoes in the making
It's that time of year again when the workshop is jammed full of new season shoes in various stages of construction. From leather and patterns on the cutting bench to closed uppers ready to be lasted, to rows of nearly finished shoes lines up waiting for soles and finishing. It won't be long before they are all coming off the production line and heading home to get cleaned up, polished and boxed ready to for little feet. 
  
As always we have a mixture of classic and not so classic colours and materials in the collection, with the most outrageous being panels of multicoloured fox fur, made from left over scraps. Super messy, super challenging to work with, and most definitely the bane of Toms life right now. But, it's going to look spectacular and we've never been known to shy away from a shoemaking challenge!
