Strap Boots – The Next Thing

I have been seeing a lot of shaft strap boots lately in the handmade shoemaker realm lately. At first, I didn’t pay so much attention to them but as more and more shoemakers started making them, I naturally became more intrigued. I think that the one that really grabbed my attention was the one that Bolero shoemaker of Japan did. So much in fact, that I decided to have a run at designing one and am eagerly awaiting the sample of it.

But this one by , Norwegian bespoke shoemaker, really really blew me away. Of course, it was easily done when he combined materials as we all know that I am a sucker for two tones. But I especially like that he chose what looks like canvas and put the strap in canvas too, as opposed to leather. It was very carefully designed and well thought and I have to tip to my hat to the famous Nordic shoemaker.

Another fine detail is the shape of the buckle which I also really like and find intriguing. Its shape is very unique and not often seen nor found for that matter as I am often at trade shows looking at buckles. A beautiful boot to say the very least. The customer chose wisely!
