^^^ Crazy cool shoes Ville! The suede hippo looks amazing, hadn't seen it before.

Darn,

Amazing leather!
Ville, do you have any knowledge of the properties of the leather? Normal and suede?

I've seen elephant, and it looks great, but hippo could be cool. 

 

A rough derby or single monk with double leather sole from Bonafe in hippo. Mouth watering already!

All of the above. I like how the grain comes through in a soft subtle way. Ville it would be nice to revisit the pics in 12 months after a EUR winter. Congrats on your project.

ezlau, here is the link to the maker's online price list with MTM and special leather surcharges:

Stefan88, you'll find some info about the hide from the leather merchant link I added before. For techical stuff, eg. protein structure, density, porosity, you'll have to contact the merchant.

meister, that's the nubuck effect -- subtle and softened. The unsanded grain looks much more gnarled.

I still haven't tried elephant, stingray, mountain ram, deer, shark, reindeer and a few others. Expect more projects in the coming decades -- Gotta collect 'em all!

Cheers Cleav. Now it hasn't rained in Sydney for about a month but when it does, I will be prepared!

very beautiful shoes PoP indeed

post #19047 of 19128

great shoes, PoP - in your experience how does having a leather midsole and a dainite outsole affect break-in/flexing? (I presume that's what the pembrokes have, but i might be wrong)

post #19048 of 19128
Yep, great looking pair, PoP.

To be honest, I don't really notice the difference on breaking in new shoes. However, full leather soles probably loosen up a bit more over a few months than dainite, which still slackens, but stays comparatively rigid with wear.

Some Navy Grain. Same grain supposedly but Coniston one has softer feel to it. Both on 325 last though BBBF feels narrow / long
