But anyway even if they would have been wearable I would not have just because I want to keep them as a souvenir.
I know it sounds a bit weird but I am a kind of fetishist.
To each his own and I understand that you would keep your first pair as a souvenir, just trying to understand why you didnt continue.
They look really great and you almost convinced me to try it myself. I assume, I pay a learning fee for it, but it looked great and being able to create a shoe that is exactly the way you want it to be, is an awesome thought.
Anyways, both your DIY threads were awesome and I might build my own shoe box (or w/e it's called) myself.
