Would you believe I use fishing wire!
Ok, I do it two ways. If I wrap the strap I actually pull the ribbon I am going to use FIRST so the buckle is attached to the ribbon. Then I start to wrap the strap. When I am finished I center the buckle over the *v* section and glue. Now if I do not wrap and just do a bow with a buckle right on the rubber, I glue with a dab of E600. Then I sew the fishing wire through. I knot it at the top of the *v* and then dap the E6000 on the final knot so it doesn't come undone. When I am sewing the fishing wire I make sure each time I pull it up as tight as I can so no fishing wire is on the part that goes between your toes.
I have made and sold at least 50 of these and I wear three pairs myself and never feel a thing on my foot.
