This is my modified guide to crafting a pair of leather sandals. Similar to the previous process, it takes little prior leatherworking knowledge to complete this build.
A while ago I made a tutorial on how to make a pair of leather sandals. Since then my skills have improved, and I have given more thought into this project, having created a new sandal design. The particular features of this recent design which distinguishes it from the prior includes a smooth sole in which the arch flaps protrude from the middle sole layer instead of being sewn directly to the top layer, as well as interchangable laces due to the addition of a throng, as opposed to the prior design which involved the laces being a part of the sandal itself, and taking the role of the throng. Additionally, the curved shape of the heel pieces comes from the process of wet-molding, as opposed to the prior process of trimming and stitching a flat sheet, thus providing a cleaner look and increasing the durability. Overall, I feel that this pair is superior to my prior pair, and I will explain the entire process of its creation.
