The only shoe i've made was on this cake. I suppose you can use the same method. I made myself a wedge out of fondant and covered it in plastic wrap. The height of the wedge will be the height of how you want your shoe to be. Then i drew a shoe sole on a piece of baking paper, rolled out my gumpaste and cut it using the outline. I then put this piece of cut gumpaste on top of the wedge to dry.
I then made another shape out of fondant so i could mould the front of the shoe on top of it, it needed to be the same size as the front of the piece of gumpaste i had cut earlier. I covered ths fondant mold in plastic wrap and them moulded the gumpaste on top of it, and let it dry. I then stuck the top of the shoe to the earlier made sole. I made a heel out of gumpaste and stuck it to the bottom
I hope all this makes sense.
