Interesting. I never thought about this and just assumed it was the normal way people walked. Had to look up why this was "a bad thing" and learned there's a forefoot strike too. Not something I ever considered.

Having said that, I heel strike too and wear my boots all the time. Never considered it a problem.

Follow up to my first attempt to make boots...

Here is my second attempt. Very happy with how these turned out!

  • Brown Horween horsebutt chromexel
  • Japanese roller buckles
  • Unstructured toes
  • Neoprene half sole and Catspaw heels

    They’re amazing canuckelhead.
    Surely you’ve got some progress shots you can show us??
    I’d love to see the machinery you’re using too.
