Heel counter..

Heel counter..

After cutting the ‘continuous’ strap out (the sandals are made to be adjustable) and imprinting my initials onto the sole, I dyed the leather a dark Maroon kind of colour. Then in my next session, the heel section (or counter) was wetted so it could be formed and shaped through the slit at the back of the heel, and nailed on with tacks, in order for it to dry in the correct shape.
