The upper is turned, now attaching the sole. This is very much an experiment but so far it is coming along better than expected. It is a style from early modern shoe construction, with a lot of similarities to the archaeological finds from the Mary Rose but with a modernized upper. This style of construction bridges the gap between Medieval turnshoes and fully lasted ones and dates from around A.D. 1545. Ah, the good old days.
Not a great photo perhaps but construction photos will be uploaded if and when this project is successfully completed.
