Rosenlund: Summary

And so my shoe nr. 22 is done: Rosenlund. It’s a ladies cap toe oxford, in dark brown boxcalf from Tanneries du Puy.

This is a display of the finished shoes – in the construction post, I describe how they were made.

I spent a lot of time on finishing for this pair, and I’m happy with how it turned out.
