The purple lines show how I often see boot makers punch their holes in the insole for inseaming.

The blue lines show a better way to position the stitches; this way all of the stress for multiple stitches isn’t centered on one hole. Notice how I’ve angled the stitch/hole to keep an even stitch length on the outside edge.
