2016 Darbys

Needed a pair of casual AND Christmas derbys so this is what I came up with.

The Last has two modifications from the previous; I added a full 1/8 on the sole so that I could have a Poron base under my foot.

And added a little in the joint area to give my foot more room over the great toe - ball.

Getting more adventuress with the lining; still not where I want it...

The new water based contact cement is so sticky that I only need tack around the heel & toe.

Experimenting with buckram for toe puff & counter
