    Can anyone tell me if I'm understanding this article correctly. Did this guy punch holes in this shoe with a ball point pen? If someone reads French they can probably clue me into as to what is going on. Thanks.

    I don't read French, but I think the pen was being used to mark where the new coloring would go on his shoe. Unless the leather were paper thin, I think it would be pretty tough to get a bic pen tip to make those holes too -- I think those were already there. In any case, very interesting looking shoes.

    Oh yeah, I see.

    I completely missed the line that was drawn in the third picture.

    Thanks.
