Papa’s got new boots

Okay… I have to show off my new bottes sauvage. These were made by Mike Tharp and are a common French Canadian boot.  These were essentially a boot form of the oxhide shoe or soulier de boeuf.  This type of shoe was a European response to the Indian moccasin.  It is made with European tanned, heavy leather and with European leather sewing techniques, but with the shape and construction of a native moccasin.
