Konan's Shoes?

I'm trying to figure out how to make Konan's shoes from Naruto Shippuden. I've already got these heels that I plan on using as the base of the shoes.

Shoes

I'm curious as to what would be the best method of putting the tights / leggings / whatever onto the shoes so that they hold together. I was thinking of snipping off the bottom of the feet of the tights and super gluing them to the shoe, but I'm not sure how well it would hold together. Suggestions, anyone?

EDIT: Reference picture

Will the tape come off of the stockings without tearing them?

I'm working on a Konan cosplay myself right now. I went about the shoes in a different way, but my suggestion is hot glue, definitely not super glue.

Ideally you'd have something thicker than tights (hard to construct things with such fragile material...) and then you could sew the material to the shoe.

But trust me, if you're going to glue, use hot glue. Super glue does not work on fabric very well, especially thin fabric.

What did you do to make your shoes, if you don't mind me asking? I just want a general idea of what other Konan cosplayers have done.

I didn't connect the leggings to my shoes. I just got sandals with two thin black straps over the top, colored the sides and bottoms white. The straps blend into the leggings/sock things, so it's not a huge deal. It looks pretty good, but I'm eventually going to ditch the straps and sew the leggings onto the sandals.

Good luck!
