Super soft leathers are hand cut & machine sewn using a traditional lace-up bootie pattern, and I call this one "Apple & Pony".
This version is with silky soft burgundy "pony" (hair on hide calf skin) fore foot, and a soft polished apple green cowhide for the heel section. The green is thin, but firmer leather to help hold the shape, but it's still very soft & flexible.
The calf skin is super soft, and as silky & shiny as the outer is, the inside is even softer due to a fine suede finish. I have a picture with the shoe rolled up to try to show how soft & flexible this leather is.
The laces are cut from maroon cowhide, though traditional laces or ribbons can be used instead if you prefer to change them.
The cowhide sole is about 1/8" thick and the soft suede side is used for the insole, and the lightly textured top grain is the outer sole side, adding natural slip-resistance. I ink stamp my "B8C" logo on the bottom of each shoe.
This pair is just over 5" long within the stitching, so should suit little ones 6-12 months old.
I have also "pinked" the edges of the sole, and along the ball of the foot, where the apple overlaps the pony, the seam is glued and two rows of top stitching.
This pattern can be made in numerous color combinations, and more sizes. So please message me with your request.
