Tor Boots are go!

Welcome back dear shoe folk, it may be mayhem with the Tor Boot campaign on social media but all is calm here in the workshop.

Zada joined us earlier in the week for some one-to-one shoemaking and got straight down to it despite a 7am arrival after a lengthy flight from Manilla via Hong Kong. There's true dedication!

James has been making alongside her...finally finishing the show pieces that we shoed at London Craft Week. They were in a very deconstructed state back then!

We thinking they are shaping up to be a really elegant pair of handsewn shoes.

Some great news....we hit our Kickstarter target in a record six days, so the Tor boot is going into production. And there are still great early bird rewards to be had - vastly reduced priced boots - so please do share the campaign far and wide - especially to friends in colder climates - and pledge if you fancy a pair!

We celebrated this afternoon in true Carreducker style with much mirth and a little jig!

That's all from us for now. Until next week, happy shoemaking!
