The oxfords I made in Budapest for Heidi....

...And the tools I used to make them. 

I labored over these shoes for 10 days during my apprenticeship at the Koronya workshop in Budapest last month.  I created a classic oxford pattern, cut from high-quality, matted leather and on soles that I painstakingly carved from durable cow-neck, using tools #1 and #6.  I'm thrilled, and admittedly surprised, that all 10 fingers are still attached and working.  

More news on shoes and Budapest adventures to come!
