Dolce & Gabbana, Gator Print, Extreme Pointed Toe Oxford -- Black

This page is to give you an idea as to the step process involved in transforming a shoe from its normal design to a Pointed Toe or Extreme Pointed Toe Design.  Here you see the good, the bad, and the ugly and then the finished product.  There is quite a bit of work involved in the process, but it makes for a fine hand produced finished product, that is High Fashion and unlike any others you will find.  You will have people staring at your shoes and coming up to you asking where did you get those shoes.

Before Photos



Tipes of shoes were worn down into the shoe leather, Damn!

Shoe heel, leather portion, worn down


In Progress Photos

Shoes with gold dye coloring removed, ugly.  Toes reshaped to a more EXTREME Pointed Toe Design.


Leather added to toes as this part was worn off by previous owner.



Dying & Gluing Process


Leather portion on heel replaced with leather from old pair of Johnson & Murphy Shoes -- SCRAPPED -- SKU# 847 (Green -- Repurposing Process).  I often use parts of old shoes for remaking and redesigning other shoes.  Also extra leather tip added to toes as extreme pointed toe shoes wear down quickly at the toe as there is little surface area that touches the ground and thus more wear on a smaller area.



Initial Trying on of Shoes 

Shoes immediately after being unclamped from gluing.

Shoes after before initial shoe polish applied and shined.
