So, Tichoblanco forced me to talk about Boot Camp, the fine leather footwear gathering / world’s fair of boots and shoes and leather / celebration of shoemaking / big ol’ party that we just put on a few weeks back in Industry City, Brooklyn.

We get into plenty of aggressive reminiscing—about the community connections forged and strengthened, the amazing footwear and makers in attendance, and even a Boot Camp miracle or two—before spending the entire second half going over attendee feedback in an effort to make Boot Camp 2024 the best it can possibly be.

If you made it to Boot Camp, I dare say you may enjoy taking a trip down boot-memory lane. If you didn’t—well, living vicariously can be a pretty great way to live. And this should help you make a call on if coming to Brooklyn for Boot Camp ’24 is something that makes sense for you.

Give it a listen below!
