I made another pair of boots for the American Model. These are made of knitted tube, so there are no seams. As they stretch quite a bit, there is no need for zippers.
The upper edge of the leg was treated with Fray Stop, which is some sort of fabric glue. It stops the knit from unraveling, so there is no need for any other finishing.
The lace was sewn in place by hand. The heels are made of plaster and covered with the same knit and the outer soles are made of pink leather. I don't remember seeing real shoes with pink outer soles, but there is no point letting that stop me.
