To make this, I only needed one shot where I walked on the puddle. Since I used a tripod, no tracking was necessary whatsoever.

1. I took the last frame of the video and froze that frame so I could use it as a plate / empty background.
2. On the original video layer, I masked my body out frame by frame.
3. On the few frames where one of the shoes was masked out (because it moved behind my masked out leg), I had to recreate the shoe by using duplicating, freezing, masking and animating the last frame where the shoe was fully visible. 
4. Since I had to mask myself out, the “inside” of both shoes had to be “faked” as well. To do this, I took a piece of the front of each shoe and placed it behind the main layer where I masked myself out. Then, I animated both pieces independently frame by frame so they moved along with the rest of the shoe.
5. For the color correction, I used Keylight in After Effects to key out the color blue, and then Curves to invert its alpha channel. Then, I used that layer as the alpha channel of a new blue solid I made, isolating the blue color from the rest of the video layer. For the rest, I used simple curves to get a sepia looking color and placed this below the blue solid layer. Now everything’s sepia except for the blue of the shoes!
6. Finally, I added camera movement in post!
