Smooth 5 to 6 'stirrup' strips from one side of anchor strip around heel to other side of the anchor strip in a progressively overlapping manner. The last two of these stirrup strips are applied in a diagonal pattern. A series of 5 or 6 locking strips are wrapped above the ankle to cover the stirrup strips and hold them in place.
