    Shell cordovan balmoral boots would be amazing. But then again it all depends on what you already have. Are you going to be using Kow hoo again?

    Good idea, but I have a brown balmoral already.
    I am thinking to ask Cliff to make the new pair.

    Thank you. The Mystery shoemaker. [​IMG]
    I will finish the outsole by myself.

    May be Hungary, I think.
    But I just speak Chinese and English, so better to deal with a british company.
    I also do it by digital file, so I don't know will other workshops can handle it.

    Italy, Germany, Austria... all countries, who have a certain tradition in shoemaking.
