Shoe Making 15.1.28 : Assistant Report 12

The start of another shoe repair. These boots are Fiorentini and Baker, an Italian brand. It is always interesting during a repair because that is when you can tell the true quality of a shoe. These seem to be good quality for a factory made shoe.

New heels. The one on the left has been dyed and waxed and the one on the right before dye and wax.
