Additional materials you need:

Step 1: Make a Pattern of Your Feet and Modify It Until You Like It - It Will Be the Shape of the Sole.
Step 2: Make an Insert to Support Your Foot.
Step 3: Make the Toe-separator and Fix It.
Step 4: Mark the Stitching Holes, Punch/cut the Slots and Stitch the Thongs on Place.
Step 5: Glue the Soles Together, Punch Again All the Holes and Stitch It.
Step 6: Mount the Toe-separator With a Copper Rivet.
Step 7: Make the Heel and Glue the Rubber Sole. Cream the Sides of the Sole and Burnish It Accurately (sorry No Pics).
Step 8: Love Your Measure-made Luxury Sandals. Your Friends Will Ask You to Make Them Also a Pair of It ;-)
