Leather Shoes From Bulgaria

My friend made me these traditional Bulgarian leather shoes. She said that to make them mold to my feet I needed to soak them, then put them on and wear them until they were almost dry. So here are some photos I took of the process. I'm still not sure how to lace them, so I emailed her for more directions. I've always admired people that could make shoes. Other than some knitted or crocheted slippers, I've never managed to finish a pair of shoes.
