This question is aimed at anyone with more leatherworking experience than me (more than a year). I'm new around these parts but have made two pair of successful all leather flip flops that I'm very proud of and plan on posting pictures of when i get the chance. Anyways my question is I'm interested in making shoes. Not medieveal style shoes but leather shoes i could wear around. Upon examining my brown leather shoes I bought from the store i noticed that the leather on the toe was very tough and thick and somehow was curved and then hardened into a shoe shape. How would one go about shaping this out of one piece of leather. Any help in experience or places where i could find out about shoe construction would be great. I'm hoping to challenge myself.
