Important materials and tools needed:
The tutorial requires a sewing machine.
The boots are made of thinned cowhide leather (to thin leather you need a special leather thinning machine). If you don't have the machine you can replace cowhide with fine lambskin leather 0.5-0.6 mm thick.
The outsoles are made of cowhide leather 1.5 mm thick. The shoe lasts are printed on a 3D printer. They can be made by hand instead.

Additional Information:
Boots scale: 1/6 (outsole is 5 cm)
The boots are originally made for TTM18-19 figures feet.
The tutorial is also suitable for slightly larger / smaller boots (1/3 to 1/9 scale).
