Lacing the shank

Here’s a progress photo of how I put in a steel shank. On the far left is a boot with the steel shank glued in. That obviously wouldn’t last long, so the glue is just to hold it in place until I lace it. In the middle, I’ve added a layer of leather over the steel shank. Finally, on the right, I’ve securely laced-in the covered shank.
