Attaching the cover to the wedge

Attaching the cover to the wedge

Once the covering was cut out, it was time to attach it to the wedge. This was done by glueing a small part of the leather at a time and wrapping it around the shoe so that the join (the edges were skived) was on the inner side of the wedge. After doing this I glued around the edges of the sole (as shown in the photo) so that the access of the leather could be folded and tightened around the wedge in a way similar to lasting but without tacks..
