Hello craftsters,

I am a knitter, so my shoe making abilities are next to nil.  I was wondering if I could have some ideas on how to execute this project I am working on for a friend: sandals from the movie 300.  I want to recreate the sandals from the movie exactly (or as close as possible).  I need all the straps in all the right places, so I can't just buy them.  I would love any of your ideas! I do not know if construction or reconstruction would work better in this instance.  Here is a picture of what these Spartan sandals need to look like.  This, unfortunatley, was the best that I could do because none of the stills really include feet.  (Better pics that I will be using are in the books, but I don't have a scanner, sorry.)

Welcome to Craftster!

My idea would be to buy sandals that are somewhat close to the ones from the movie, and then possibly buy matching leather/whatever they're made out of, and then make extra straps for them.

Yeah a recon of some sandals would be great. Just go around and see if you can't find the sole of the sandal here on the internet. Sandals are a plenty.

Anywho are planning on distressing the straps, or making the sandals seeming as if they are brand new?

Sora: I've... I've been having these weird thoughts lately. Like...Is any of this real... Or not?

Your link didn't work for me, it just went to the main site. However, I think I know what you mean. I would love to see ideas people post as I have been craving some Greek-esque leg wrap leather sandles myself. If you manage to accomplish it, do post please, with a tute!
