Boot surgery

I just butchered these boots. I realized they would be PERFECT for Sin City this weekend as well as the fetish freak show next week but I couldn't wear them to either one because the heals are so high I can't dance in them. Heck, I can't even walk in them! So I just cut the tops off to splice them onto a lower heeled boot.

They don't look as sexy with low heels but I can use them to top at least 3 different pairs of boots. These boots will go further now than when they were permanently attached to 6 inch heels. And I did a photoshoot in them earlier this year so once those pics are ready I'll still have some record of enjoying the unaltered version of the boot.

But now I'm not sure what to do with the part of the boot I spliced off: BOOT REMNANTS

You can see I cut down into where the zipper was so I could retain those in the new version I'm making of these boots. But some one could add grommets around the area where the zipper was and make them lace up ankle boots. Perhaps something fun could be done with the top? I could keep them and use PVC tape to create a criss-cross wrap around the leg type boot perhaps?

I'm still going to get a ton of enjoyment from the tops of the boots. Just not sure what to do with those bottom parts I don't need anymore. Toss them in the pile for the next clothing swap? Put them on eBay for some creative soul to make something into? Or try to add grommets or something and fix them into yet another cool new pair of boots. Thoughts anyone?
