Or take it off and use strips of thin paper masking tape overlapping each other to make a template. Once applied to the heel, you can run a pen along the top of the heel where it meets the shoe to get a rough idea of the curve you'll need to cut.

I find it easier to line up the new covering with the centre of the heel block and then smooth it out on both sides. Is sometimes helps to dampen the leather covering as it makes it more supple and easy to mould against the heel.
