Lasting the rest of the Upper..

Lasting the rest of the Upper..

The next step for my red leather court shoes, was to last the rest of the upper, at the front. This was done in a similar fashion to the lining, however it was extremely important to make sure that the lining and the upper were at the same ‘tightness’. The lining could not be tighter than the upper or vice versa, because I would end up with a strangely feeling and fitting shoe. After much checking and feeling, the fronts of my uppers were lasted, first with tacks, and then with glue.
