Shoemaking: Toe Puff

It took me a while to appreciate how much the toe puff affects the look of the finished shoes.

Here's an image of a pair of chisel toe samples being made.

Under those layers of leather is a ~4mm thick leather insole. Hardly noticeable due to the unbroken slope down to the feather edge. A small and subtle detail that carries a huge visual impact.
