These Amur Cherry boots keep cropping up and I figured the boot needed some glitz and shine. The grain is beautiful but for a dancer it needed some ‘kick’.
So on comes the experiment. I revealed the toe-cap and heal cover but still no va-voom! So off to Michael’s craft supply store I came across some variegated gold leaf flakes to give the boot some toe-tapping oomph, the kind you see on clients visiting New York’s Cotton Club back in the 20’s and 30’s when all the jazz greats created some great sound!
Oh my! See those gals shimmy and shake!! The guys were pretty good and not to be out done they would wear some shoes with some gold on them! Oh yeah!!!! Let ‘er rip!

That’s one sparkling boot Roman, nice touch! Hope it’s not too cold there today, my daughter is crossing your province, BC to Sask.
