Video: The beauty and hard work of making handmade boots

Listening to George Ziermann talk about his life and how he got to making boots while watching him work at his craft is a true treat. Ziermann has been hand making boots for over 40 years and seeing the care that goes into each pair makes me think that his boots will last a lifetime.


This short doc by Farmrun reveals that Ziermann actually wants to retire and give his shop to someone but he hasn't found anyone who's interested (and has the work ethic).

Great subject. It's amazing how much work goes into those boots. I hope George finds someone to pass his skills on to.

Side note: The camera person must have drank a whole pot of coffee cause they can't seem to stand still or focus on where things are happening. /oldmangrumble
