BIJOU

HAND-WELTED BOOTS


Inspired by the ostentatious glamour of club-goers in the 80’s and the ritual of getting ready to go out. Think of the biggest hair, the loudewst colors, shoulder pads, and costume jewelry. 

The uppers are a combination of scrap ostrich leather, hot pink goat skin, and upcycled purple pig suede pants. A vegetable tan hide serves as the lining, sole, and welt., dyed black with vinegar. Mom’s jewelry from “back in the day” serve as the zipper pulls.
