Custom Work: Except for the pre-made items available, each boot is custom fit and made for the customer. I use measurements and a foot tracings from each customer and new and unique pattern will be created for each new boot or shoe made. All work is hand done. The work and materials are guaranteed for 1 year.
How Off the Peg Boots and Shoes are Made: Boots and shoes designed to hold up to everyday use. In period, shoes and boots held up to 4 months of use. By using some modern materials and techniques, my boots will hold up for years. I use the finest quality 4 to 6 ounce vegetable tanned leather, leather mid-soles and leather soles to provide a period look.
Like the cordwainers and cobblers from the Middle Ages, lasts are used to size and shape each shoe. after a few days of wear will take shape. I encourage that after a few days, athletic in-sole inserts be added to provide arch support and to ensure a very comfortable boot.
