I made some mesh shoes recently.  No problems with texturing or even making a hud.  I put on the alpha layer & shoe base.. align them correctly while on a pose stand and all is great but once I step off and my avatar moves.. the shoes arent on the legs/ankles correctly anymore!  Am I missing something?  This is driving me crazy!  Any help or suggestions will be GREATLY appreciated!  :)

Don't worry, I had this EXACT same issue when I first started making mesh footwear!  :smileyvery-happy:

I believe it's simply due to the centrepoint of your mesh shoes being out of kilter compared to the attachment points on the feet or legs (I'm assuming these are simply ATTACHMENTS, not rigged meshes).

Just drop in a tiny invisible cube prim around where the ankle would be, and link the shoe mesh to it (repeat this for both left and right meshes - one prim per mesh). Note: The invisible prim MUST be the root prim, otherwise this won't work as far as I know.

Now the shoes should attach and stay in place properly.  :matte-motes-smile:
