A detail shot here, or more accurately, a sad attempt to use an iPhone to capture how black chromexcel begins to reveal a real depth in the finish over time.

Grooving a leather sole prior to stitching.  Rubber probably is more practical, but dang if I don’t think leather soles are the business!  #ryaton #brawler #shoemaking #cordwainer #madeincanada #smallbatch #handmade #shoes

Rubber Half Sole 2.0 freshly out of the wash bin.  A bit stiffer than V 1.0, and with an improved (i.e. more traditional) attaching method. #ryaton #brawler #shoemaking #bootmaking #cordwainer #cordonnier #madeincanada #smallbatch #shoes
