My Oh my! This is my first ever attempt at a stiletto shoe. I have to say it really tested by patience. This style of shoe has a platform, that I carved out of styro and covered with black gumpaste, then used tylo glue to stick it onto the sole of the shoe. There were times when I needed 8 arms to handle this baby! Not ideal, but passable I guess. I'll try and post the template for the enclosed shoe, if I ever recover, lol.
