This weekend brought our first snow of the season, so we ran outside and stood in it. Icy blue camouflage that is my Canadian tuxedo. Details below.
My friend Leslie, the badass and founder behind Breaking Hearts & Burning Rubber, created a line of custom motorcycle boots (and leather jackets, but we're saving that for the next post.)
She invited me to the studio to see how each pair of handmade shoes goes down, from material selection to the finished pair.
MY CUSTOM PAIR
Leslie and I spent some time looking through her archive of leathers and materials before sizing the shoe and selecting the heel. Below, my finished patent leather booties.
