Update on that second pair of shoes?

What an awesome result the first one was.

Yeah, saw that.

Could you elaborate why it looked better than it was?

Did they not fit? Did they fall apart?

They don't fall apart, they are just not wearable.
The leather is way too soft and I made a mistake on the pattern so I have a little space on the side at the bottom of each tong.
But anyway even if they would have been wearable I would not have just because I want to keep them as a souvenir.
I know it sounds a bit weird but I am a kind of fetishist.

To each his own and I understand that you would keep your first pair as a souvenir, just trying to understand why you didnt continue.

They look really great and you almost convinced me to try it myself. I assume, I pay a learning fee for it, but it looked great and being able to create a shoe that is exactly the way you want it to be, is an awesome thought.

Anyways, both your DIY threads were awesome and I might build my own shoe box (or w/e it's called) myself.
