Skewers or wire? Any other tips? I know these are very fragile so I want all the advice I can't get.

Also would you put the wire/skewers in shoes before or after dried?  Thanks!

I used skewers.  I made 2 soles.  I put the skewers all the way up the shoe and incased in between the 2 soles so they would be sturdier.  You see how the shoe curves some.  Once assembled I laid the shoe flat with some support under the shoe to make it curve.  I hope this helps
