Making Platform Boots

 My cat is investigating the styrofoam insulation I'm using to build up the platform soles.

I ended up only using 2 layers because they were high enough for what I'm doing. I used "NO MORE NAILS" brand adhesive to stick the layers together and to the soles of my old winter boots. I'll be smoothing and blending the layers together. NOTE: It's very important to cut the front of the platform sole to the same angle of the sole of the original boot, otherwise you won't be able to walk properly and you risk the fake sole coming off.
  More photos as work progresses.
