I carve wooden boots regularly and my latest is a pair of “Brogues” carved from a piece of Amur cherry .
Because my supply of unusual wood is small, most times I am only allowed to make a singleton. In the case of the Amur cherry brogues I tried and was able to make a pair.
I used a Foredom power carver with a flex shaft and the piece is finished with tung oil.
