  1. If you haven't used "ghost" waxed leather yet, it's worth checking out. Hope you like my video.
  2. Recently I received a couple Shoe build kits from Sneakerkit that allowed me to make my first pair of shoes. After my first build I decided to make some hightop "boot " style with some added personalization.
  3. Ghost Leather Black Wax will eventually fade to reveal a whiskey brown underneath.
  4. Recently I had a go at replacing my old watch strap and decided to film most of the process. It was a fairly easy yet rewarding project as I had the old one to use as a template.
  5. When I was hand dying my projects, I found great results in a pair of latex gloves and dye gel, a couple different manufacturers make it. After using it I never went back to "traditional dye" Especially useful for larger pieces of leather, you can just massage the gel in, let it sit for a few minutes and wipe it dry. https://www.weaverleathersupply.com/c/product/fiebing_s_vintage_gel_8_oz_light_brown_50250_08_41/50250-08-41
  6. Absolutely, I was thinking the same, possibly a canvas inner lining to help with waterproofing a bit, maybe some padding around the ankle.....
  7. Hi Johnny, for this video I wanted to make it as close to the instructions as possible for use of the company, I have a second pair I will be building where I will be adding all of my personal touches, including some edge beveling. And to answer your question they do have a Hightop "boot style" that is what I will be making next. attached is the link to their patterns: https://www.sneakerkit.eu/c-3526931/patterns/
  8. If anyone has ever wanted to give a go at Shoe making but felt a bit intimidated, I feel ya. I found a company called SneakerKit that sets you up with everything you need. Watch my build along and make yourself an awesome pair of leather shoes. https://youtu.be/4zs06dVIEdQ
  9. I hope you have a blast, this is one of those projects that sets you up for many more to come with ease, being able to add your own custom touch. Caleb
  10. I hear ya, might seem pricey for us leatherworkers who already have a good knowledge base, but just to clarify, it comes with the outer soles, insoles, needle/thread and downloadable pattern for the shoes. Well worth the experience and knowledge gained during the build.
