    Some of you may recall my other posts on my shoemaking adventures (e.g. see here: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...ht=shoemaking).

    Here is my most recent effort -- made on the same last as the pair in the previously cited thread, albeit after significant modification of the last.

    Good god. There are like, real shoes. You made them? Will you antique them at all? I think the brogues would benefit from some darkening.

    Those are pretty awesome, could you take photos of the creation process next time? You could share all the labor pains, which all the forum would love to bear with you!!
