the RIVER boot and Getting back to were it all started...I’ve decided to post these documentation pictures of my very first pair of boots ever built. Five years ago I bought about 10 dollars in car upholstery leather a handful of tent repair eyelets and another 3 bucks on bootlaces at the local hardware store. I wore these boots everyday for one year, in the snow, in the mud, in the rain, I spent a week straight with em submerged pulling a cannon over a shallow river rock bottom then left em on the front dash of my old truck to dry under a humid Missouri summers sun.
Curled toes, cracking stitch lines, water stained leather soles, they are a work of art... based of the conditions that this life has shared and the story it has to tell.
What’s your sole look like?
