“All desert boots are chukkas but not all chukkas are desert boots…” at least, that’s what i googled :) This was my first attempt at mens’ shoes and it took me a few months to get these to a point where i am happy with the end result. Of course, this project is not drama free so maybe i’ll blog about the process someday.
These are lined with pigskin and have a crepe sole and leather midsole. I don’t have a machine yet that will stitch the sole to the uppers so took it to the cobbler for that but the regular sewing of the uppers was done on a regular industrial sewing machine and finished off with a little bit of hand sewing.
These were made with love…let me know if you see the heart stamp i put into the sole of the shoe. =)
