    Le Loup (I see you commented on some of his threads) makes his own. He has a video on his youtube about it

    homemade boots.

    At the markets we visit (west end in brisbane) there's a lady who makes shoes and boots. She does shoe-making workshops too. I'll dig up a link to her site
    edited: her website just has felt-making (interesting but is another topic) so here's her facebook page. she's a fascinating person to talk to - also does blacksmithing
