DIY - travel flats (the flattest)

ingredients: one pair of ballet flats, one reasonably competent shoe repair place
thin rubber shoe tread that you can cut to size, serious glue, thin fabric or leather patch. glue sole to bottom, glue patch to inside above where toes go to reduce the effect of the soft leather molding to your toes.

i happen to choose to add an arch support to mine.
makes for the flattest, most packable shoes ever (questionable durability...)

Cute. I like how much higher they go on the foot compared to most flats. It's a very different shape really.

thanks martha. they are comfortable enough. i will have to wait until a trip to report on how they really perform though.
