"Barefoot shoes"

First off, it's been a while since my pliers weren't used at the diesel shop where I work. I'm glad to be back into it, after some encouragement from a few coworkers.
I recently saw an article about these chainmail "shoes" made by GoST-barefoot. If you haven't seen them yet I recommend checking them out. I've posted a link

Simply, it's nothing more than a pair of chainmail socks with some laces and some nifty rubber pads on the bottom. They range from $160-360 respectively. That may be ok for normies, but I refuse to pay that much for something I could make in a night.
My question is; what kind of template could I use? It seems a ballerina shoe pattern would work, even though I wear a size 17 and I doubt I would find one in that size. I would appreciate some thoughts or ideas.

personally, i wouldn't go by a partern. i would wrap my foot with strips of e4 and seem them together. you could also make a plaster mold of your foot to work on instead of bending down constantly to adjust to your real foot. you'll need to have all e4 seems perfected for this project. here is an article i wrote that might help a bit.
