    I do make shoes as a hobby, moccasins in the style of the Native Americans to be correct and you need a relatively small piece of hide to make a pair. Modern shoes are made sewing together several pieces of leather so you need even less. Here some pics. The sole is cut in a 8,5 size so you get an idea of how big the leather is. 1.jpeg 2.jpeg 3.jpeg moccsudovestmiei.jpg
