Does anyone know where I can find a template for this type of shoe?  I can't seem to figure out how the platform is connected to the back part of the shoe (the part that goes on the heel of your foot, not the actual heel)  It's like if it is one piece.  Does anyone know how to do this?

No but what I did was buy a shoe similar to the one I wanted to make --I found one on big sale and I took it apart and that's how I made a template previously. Just a thought if you can't locate a template.

Thanks for your help.  I might have to try to find a similar shoe today because all of the tutorials seem to be for open toe/strappy shoes and I need a closed one.  Thanks again! Wish me luck!

It looks like some of these are closed shoes:
