Easter treats - new Tool Shed uppers

Welcome back good shoe folk of the world, after a week of sourcing furniture and fittings for the new premises we are enjoying an extra-long weekend break over Easter.

Alongside the new premises we are offering more courses, including shorter shoe making courses, as well as making improvements to the e-commerce side of the website. We've always offered a choice of uppers online on the Tool Shed, but from next month you will be able to see exactly what you are ordering and the colours available. Here are the sample uppers we've made pulled over the 0743 so you can see the detail and proportions. 

Semi-brogue Derby with a straight toecap and counter in deep burgundy

Semi-brogue Oxford with a straight toe cap in conker  brown

Full Brogue Oxford with gimped toecap, vamp and counter in acorn

Plain Oxford in conker brown

Back seam

Plain Derby in black calf

Please note eyelets will only be available on request. All eyelets will be 'blind' (visible only on the inside only) as standard.

We'll let you know when these go live on the website but for now, until next week we wish you a happy Easter break and happy shoe making!
