Look at my beautiful snazzy new shoes! Ain't nobody else got these shoes!
They are Ruben Sanchez dark green suede (#37) and terracotta nobuk (#7).
I wanted to share them because of the laser engraving. I got to customise the flat pattern pieces before they were sewn up. Talk about bespoke!
It took a long time to get my skills up to scratch for this etching - narrowing down from about 7 designs and paring back the eccentricities. Obviously the final product looked different to what I had been imagining early in the design. That's pretty standard though for makers, isn't it?
The possibilities were endless - far too easy to go overboard. In the end I tried to keep it simple and worked some crazy Inkscape magic.
My left foot has some "speed shading" too, so that my foot can move really fast - because the design will never look like it's in focus. Speed shading (allow Youtube to explain). Yes. Deliberate.
