Reinforcing and crimping vamps

Reinforcing and crimping vamps

One set of red alligator vamps is on the crimp boards. The brown leather is kangaroo lining and it’s cemented to the red alligator. This is how I reinforce a delicate leather; I only reinforce the tongue area and edges. The vamp looks nicer and is easier to work with than one that has the reinforcing leather cemented all over the entire vamp.
