    Haferlschuh by Christian Hofstätter, Neukirchen

    They just returned from the first fitting adjustments. Christian did a great job.
    (I use the old picture).

    fritzl: your shoes are very good. Some of the best i've seen here. Not too fancy. Real shoes. Not so much a fan of the exotic skin ones.

    The nile-perch hide was a "gift" and I asked Lucian Maftei, if it is possible to make a shoe out of it. It was a challenge and an experiment for both of us. The shoes were finally made by his father, who took the "plunge". To be honest, I am happy with the result and it's perfectly made, but they do not get too much wear. It takes a certain mood to pull it off. The fake snake was just for fun [​IMG]

    Running Beagle was so kind to put up some examples from Maftei's workshop. Pictures are on the courtesy of RB and Prof. Hansen of Welesley College. Thread [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
