How do I redesign a pair of high heels and/or buy parts to make my own shoes?
I have a lovely pair of shoes at home that are my favourite pair because I can wear them all day and not be in pain. They are strappy 3" heel sandals with a net-like mesh of ribbons tied together to make a criss-cross grid over the top of my foot. Recently, one of the ribbons came unglued from the sole and as a DIYer I thought there must be a way for me to make this shoe better rather than bringing them to a cobbler to have them repaired. The small knots where the ribbons cross each other do press into my feet in a couple of places and leave small indents which are unsightly and slightly uncomfortable sometimes. Does anyone here work in the shoe-making industry? I want to redesign my shoes completely but use the soles as a starting place. If this works out I'd also like to know how companies make/buy their high heels and how I can get the parts to design my own shoes whenever I want.?
