Important materials and tools needed:In the tutorial, I sew only by hand.
The boots are made of thinned lambskin (to thin leather you need a special leather thinning machine). If you don't have the machine you can try to find fine lambskin leather 0.5-0.6 mm thick.
Shoe lasts and outsoles are printed on a 3D printer. They can be made by hand instead.

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The boots are originally made for TTM18-19 figures.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