Ghillie shoe or boot
Image from 'Shoe Design: A Handbook for Footwear Designers'
When you book your 5-day Shoe workshop we'll ask you to tell us which style you'd like to make. Your ideas can be very simple - to begin with at least! We spend the first day of your workshop editing and refining your design, (this basically means making a wonderful mess with all our lovely leathers).
Ghillie shoes and boots are based on Irish and Scottish dance shoes. They are laced down the centre front of the shoe or boot.
If you google search 'Ghillie' you'll be rewarded with lots of inspirational examples! Our INSTAGRAM is also a great place to look for examples.
