Am I posting this picture (gasp, wheeze) to show my progress on this pair, or is posting an update (puff, pant) just a good excuse to take a break after wrestling the lasts out? 🥴

    These boots are so beautiful and amazing, absolutely extraordinary! Is this toe style exclusive to you? I’ve seen quite a few boots in my time, and I do not believe I have ever seen this toe style. Thanks

      No, I got this toe style from my first mentor, Jay Griffith. You might spot it from other boot makers who were trained or influenced by Jay. He called it the Streamlined Square toe.

        Hi Lisa. Thanks for the information and response . To be honest, my heart is “pounding” a little bit. I am a huge admirer of you and your art. My first post ever, wasn’t sure if I was doing the process correctly. I have followed your postings for sometime, and would like to thank you for sharing yourself, and your creations. They provide a lot of joy and happiness. Thanks again, you are greatly appreciated!
