Shoemaking: Chukka Boot
The chukka boot has roots that reach back to a decidedly non-northern location, the Sahara desert. Originally crafted by the cobblers of Cairo for South African troops during WWII, the practical, light-weight and comfortable design now has universal appeal, as an around-town shoe, sometime workboot and even a dress shoe. Craft your very own custom-fit pair with instructor Jason Hovatter, using hand skills and industrial sewing machines. The uppers will be of American bison, with a cushioned Goodyear outsole. They will be custom fit to your foot and with proper care, they’ll last a lifetime.
