Make you own DIY shoe soles with natural materials for your DIY summer shoes. 😀 These DIY crochet soles are easy and quick to make – even for a crochet beginner. DIY crochet soles are perfect to make comfy, flexible, lightweight and durable soles for DIY summer shoes.

DIY Crochet Soles Vs. Traditional Rope Soles

Compared to traditional espadrilles soles, crochet soles take a little longer to make. But DIY crochet soles are much more flexible than traditional sewn rope soles of most espadrille shoes.

Like Barefoot Sandals

DIY jute crochet soles are as flexible as barefoot sandals. You can feel the ground under your natural crochet soles while the crochet soles still give you a layer of protection from sharp stones.

What Material For DIY Crochet Soles?

I used jute twine for these DIY crochet soles. But you can also use other plant fibers like cotton or linen twine, raffia, nettle fibers, rushes, straw, hay or tree bast fibers (like lime bast). Experiment with different fibers you have at home or can gather in nature and see what you like best.
