New sandals

Well, I'm off to work in a bit to delve into a new pair of sandals. I have a pattern that's proved to be extremely comfortable and stylish, but immediately after designing one pair I veered away from being a cobbler and dove headfirst into my buddy bags.
Even though I'm not a "slide" person (I like my flip-flops) this style really appeals to me. I call them Jimmy Slides.

It took me forever to choose the perfect materials. I didn't want something too stiff or too thick or too thin.... When I finally picked out the leathers I wanted they even ended up too girly for me! And for someone like me, who usually centers the things I make around what appeals to me (unless it's a custom order), it's an odd choice. But they're going to turn out so well! The new pair will be a deep purple with a floral stripe. They'll me similar to the pair pictured above, except where the red gator strip is, it will be extended across the entire sandal.
I still haven't decided if they need a heel or not. Maybe I should do a poll.
Alright, the cobbler in me is calling. Have a great day everyone!

I admire anyone who can do anything with leather.
I love leather. I love sandals.
