Costume Tips: The eyelets are enhanced with washers and nuts at the bottom. a metallic mesh was stitched down on the tongue. The seams were highlighted using light chain pull of brass and silver. The toe and heel were foiled similar to gold leafing and then metallic pigment was rubbed into the foil to draw out the color and the toe and heel were then laquered.

Glad you like the boots. Your in luck that right now there are a multitude of fantastic boots similar to what we made on the retail market if you don't have the time to make up a pair on your own. My suggestion is to just go out to google and type in the following keywords, "steampunk boots retail" under images and then follow back to the source any of the boots that catch your fancy. or simply go out to your local mall and look in any shoe store they are all stocked with good "steamy" boots then you will know they fit right. Good luck with your wedding.

These are amazing! I can't imagine how long it must have taken to put in all that work into the detail. My only small criticism is the little bolt at the bottom of the laces -- it's a bit out of place to me. Everything else, however, truly feels like it has a place.

Is it possible to make duplicates? Perhaps like a comission of sorts?

Sorry, We are not doing any commissions at this time. I would not anticipate that changing for at least four years until we retire.

Love it... going to use these embellishing ideas for my next construction, but making my wife's using a High heel, and adding the top part as a spat.
