shoe surgery (the result)


The glue is still drying, but the shoe trouble is as good as over. To treat the back I found a strap of bronze-coloured leather and fixed it on the heel to disguise the seams and scars. I actually glued several overlapping layers of leather before making the final top layer to even out the shape of the heel where it meets the wedge ( you may remember, the upper happened to be way bigger than the sole). So here it is, a bit wobbly on the side, but that’s ok – I’ll be walking with those, not taking close-up pictures). Can’t wait to wear them out!


  1. Wow, great job!!! I still can't believe you did this yourself, I would be so scared cutting up some shoes. Bravo!
