Welcome back good shoe folk of the world...here is the second instalment of our Tor boot story.
Possibly the most scenic Fire Exit
Squeezing the filming equipment and lights in around the machinery
The inside workings of the brass screw rivet machine
A skived vamp
We spent a good deal of time looking at the different last shapes and toe pitches before settling on the right one for the Tor boot....
An original WL boot
Half of a handsewn shoe - 12mm leather insole and sole; standard toe pitch
The chosen WL toe pitch
The finished sample boots are now back from the photographer so here they are in all their glory....
The big question is, which colour is your favourite?
I'm torn between Foxlow and Bunster and James prefers Calver and Higger. Let us know and we'll let you know when the Kickstarter campaign launches.
Anyway, that's all from us for now....until next week, happy shoemaking!
