Inner soles…

Inner soles...

At this stage, an inner sole was created by using the shape of the bottom of the last. First we roughed up the leather, wet it, pressed it onto the last with the sole press (which was quite nifty and I’d never seen before) and let it dry. The shape of the insole was then traced on and sanded into shape. For more comfort, like shown in this picture, foam was added to the inner sole and again sanded into shape.
