CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19
The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus.

If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

I have good luck with these two replacement heels, and the folks at Leather Care Supply are good to deal with:Whatever my cobbler has in stock... usually Vibram... I use Blakey's segs so the heels do not wear much at all... plus I click when I walk.
I always get the ones with the integral nails - so I go for a size 8... tap it into the heel to get it started, then step down on a hard surface to seat it.Oh great, another seemingly mundane object to research and investigate.
I mean thanks! How do you size these things?
Whisky shell... how else am I going to get a tan-ish dress leather from Whites? These are not Whites but you get an idea of what I dream may someday be possible...I didn't think you'd like shell... No patina and no need for a waxing routine... Seems very anti legaleagles to me...
