Nonleather footwear

Post by Candelori » Thu Jan 06, 2022 4:16 pm

In my search for nonleather footwear I have come across some information on bast shoes (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bast_shoe). I would like to request this recipe be considered as an addition to the Weaving skill. I believe bast is essentially what we already have in COGG as barkcloth or thornleaf cloth. I would imagine these bast shoes could be crafted through Weaving skill alone, as they are described as baskets woven to fit a foot.

It would also be very much appreciated if barkcloth and thornleaf cloth could be processed by those with Weaving skill who do not know Bushcraft, perhaps via an ability if necessary, though I will understand if the acquisition of these materials is intended to be for dedicated bushcrafters only.

My search also yielded information on the espadrille shoe (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Espadrille). These shoes have soles of rope and a cloth upper and therefore do not require the use of any leather. Any consideration of this recipe's addition would also be very much appreciated.

Lastly there is the more well-known clog shoe made of wood. I somehow suspect these might be less practical for frequent use. I have only ever briefly tried some on that were not fitted specifically to my own feet and so may certainly be wrong in this guess. If implemented, clogs might perhaps serve as some sort of low-durability moderate armored footwear.

Per the changelog: New Weaving/Bushcraft recipes: wicker shoes, bast shoes

Rope-soled shoes are in the works, but are ending up a little more finicky to add.

Thank you very much for your consideration and for the additions. I am quite excited to get some new shoes.
