Buck-stitched wingtip

Toe wrinkles and a buck-stitched wingtip were my Sunday afternoon fun
Toe wrinkles: a backing is glued onto the back of the vamp (foot leather) and then evenly-spaced lines are stitched through vamp and backing. A hook or eye end of a long fat needle is inserted between vamp and lining, through the spaces between the stitching, and a thick cord is pulled through each space.
Buck-stitching: narrow strip of leather passed up and down through leather to create the appearance of a decorative seam
Wingtip: decorative, additional piece on the toe
