The exact measurements or sizing of the last you are using will determine the patterns size - you are making each pattern to fit exactly to that particular last shape. You will need to find the shoe last to fit your foot size and width then make the pattern to fit that (the last is essentially the 'negative' form to the shoes 'positive' form - the last determiens all aspects form heel height, size and width)

Thanks! The mounts swivel so will level themselves to various angles. This is what I mean by self leveling- to the angle of terrain. You could use a wrench and change their individual height also.
