Michael Kors inspired shoes

I wanted to make a pair of shoes out of patent red leather (found a scrap in my stash).  Then I thought, I have the platforms from the Volks shoes in red, good, good.  Then I wanted to make them like the espadrilles I made in Denim for Agnes.  I was in my daughter's closet (She asked me to mail her some stuff to NY as it's getting cold there).  Then I spied them, I'm sure I must have had them in my subconscious when I made the Denim espadrilles!  There were a pair of old red espadrilles.

Here are the denim espadrilles

Now that I see the red ones, I'm going to change the direction of the rope on the red pair.  I can't believe I have red patent leather.  (I'm pretty sure this was one of my old New York trip finds).

I removed the uppers from the soles yesterday by boiling.  Now I have red soles.

I then put on the leather:

I closed the toe and then I added the rope detail

sorry for the out of focus shot
