Baker Leather* soles are so pretty. Here the soles are still wet and have just been laid onto the boots and trimmed to a nice curve in the shank area. Next I’ll stitch the soles and then peg them in the shank and heel area.

*J&FJ Baker is a small tannery in England that produces the most wonderful sole and insole leather. I’m their US rep so I guess it’s my job to promote them, but I always tell people that when I rave about Baker leather I’m speaking as a boot maker and not a salesman. Quality materials bring joy and beauty to your work.
