I plan to use this to make Satsuki's boots from Kill La Kill!
Thank you so much, otherwise it would have been super expensive ^u^

Really helpful to know how to do Miku's or even other type of characters thigh-high boots or heels. I just have one question, do you know a tutorial about how to do Anon&Kanon's shoes tutorial?? Their footwear is really a bit complicated to do if you don't know how to start. XD

Hi!! I rly luv your tutorial and plan on using it rly soon!!
But i was wondering if putting the felt on the bottom of the shoe actually make the shoes grip properly. I'm just a tad skeptical on that...
And if it starts to rain, is there anything special to worry about?

Thx!! U've been a fantastic help!! xD

What about when you have to wash the boots, though? :O Like, when it gets dirty and stuff.

considering its stockings and such; no there would be no way to add laces

Wait, so is the stocking removable from the shoe (even with glue)? Or am I gonna have to sacrifice a pair of stockings/heels?
Reply

LolaInProgress Featured By Owner May 29, 2014
Sacrifice i'm afraid! I have a pair of heels that i use again and again in this way.

Um, sorry to bother you, but do you know how to make knee-high heeled combat boots? If you don't, do you know a place that can show how to make them? If you can, it would be much appreciated.

I thought about doing that for my Lenalee cosplay, she has very "skinny" boots too x). But I was planning to wear flat shoes. Do you think it'll work as well? There won't be holes in the stocking, but that also means no glue point like you did on the heels... Maybe i could put glue directly on the shoes so the stocking are attached there, and then with the felt like you did in the tutorial...

If it was me i'd stick the stocking over the shoe, cut a tiny hole anyway to put the glue in, then cover the sole with felt :D

Question: The character I am considering doing has an odd pointed shape winging upward from the top here is a picture. How would I go about doing that - or would this technique only work with straight topped boots?
Reply
:iconlolainprogress:
LolaInProgress Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2014
Hmm this does only really work for straight top....though if you where careful and made that top detail from a light material you could perhaps sew it to the top of a stocking and use sock glue to hold it in place?

What do you mean by "make the first hole where the heel is stretching"?
I'm sorry if this is a silly question!!
Reply
:iconlolainprogress:
LolaInProgress Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2014
No problem, my wording sucks ahaha. When you pull the stocking over the heel, the stocking will be very streched out at the tip of the heel. Cut a hole where the heel meets the stocking.

Does that make sense?

This seems really nice except for one thing. I feel that having a felt sole for the shoe would cause it to not have enough traction and would cause the shoe to slip a lot while you're walking. I could be entirely wrong though since I haven't worn shoes like these so I was wondering how the traction actually is. 

Also, I'm terribly sorry if someone has already asked you this but there are just way too many comments for me to go fishing around for the answer. :(

i used easy liner, which is five bucks for ten square feet at walmart. excellent grip and easy to work with and cut.i also find it doubles a nice insoles.

:iconlolainprogress:
LolaInProgress Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2013
ahaha it fine

Without the felt your left with stocking fabric which is delicate and slippery. The felt gives excellent traction on most surfaces and protects the stocking fabric from ripping. If you are very concerned, you can buy off ebay stick on soles for extra traction, I sometimes just put little dots of hot glue on the bottom of the felt and thats acts like little rubber bits to add more friction.

Hope that helps!

I see! I would assume that felt soles wouldn't have much traction on most surfaces but now I see my assumptions were wrong so thanks a bunch for clearing that up for me! :)

No problem. The only surface felt hats it like...really slippery surfaces. But honestly ive done to like...5 cons in shoes like this and never had an issue!

Since you have the hot glue out already, why not just add some glue swirls to the bottom? I don't think felt soles would be a problem walking on carpet, but for tile I'd add some grip.

can always put some rubber or similar object as a second sole

I was thinking the same thing but I'm still curious about the traction of a felt sole
