    I don`t want to sell anything or advertise brands, but I would like to share with you some of my works, these are some Chukkas handmade. I'm not Lobb, nor Lazlo Vass but I make all the work.

    Nice job. How long have you been making shoes and how did you learn how to make them?

    Thx for sharing

    Hi DuckOB,
    I work as a foreman and master technician footwear for a private company. I started with 13 years, I have always been studying and working, with 16 years already cut, sewed by machine, taking measures, sewed by hand, that is, I did all the work, when I finished my military service (21 years) I had my own workshop for 9 years, then some men came and offered me a very good contract ......., so I'm still working with them 20 years. I can make any kind of footwear, all processes.
    It's me, working for you all, there isn't any machine.

    First you have to take the measure customer then you have the fix the molds.

    Thank you very much "comrade", these are the last videos.
    Chukkas boots 9.
    Review of sandpaper with engine placement heel cap striations long-term removal of a nozzle glass to polish the sole, grinding the edge of the fence, ending only with water and stick, there isn't inks or waxes and extraction last.

    Open lane for hand sewing and sewing thread preparation.

    And this is the last video, sole stitched by hand and stuck a half thin sole.

    The first pictures are the chukkas boots finished, clean, brushed and application of a spray to prevent stains and dirt.
    It has been a pleasure to share my work with you all.
