Turn Shoes

Here are pictures of some turn shoes I am working on.  I originally bought a pair of shoes from Sam Haywood.  When they wore out, I used his shoe as a pattern to make a new pair.  

These turn shoes are stitched together inside-out.  Then the leather is soaked with water, and they are turned right-side-to.  Hence the name "turn" shoes.  It is a bit tricky getting them to turn, especially the toe, but I got them!
