Shoemaker’s Competition in the Netherlands

One of my clients generously allowed me to send her boots to a shoemaking competition in the Netherlands. I just got the official word today that they won a Gold Medal AND a trophy!

Here are my boots with their awards.

I believe this man got to accept the awards on my behalf. Maybe next time I'll get to go in person.

    Your customer must also be SO proud. Imagine having Sorrell boots and ones that have won such an award. Makes me want to be a cowgirl 🙂

    Chris,
    Oh goodness, you don’t have to be a cowgirl! I’m not and she isn’t either. Although I guess we feel like it when we’re wearing our boots…
