For this instructable you will need:
- 2 x pieces of 3/4 plywood - cut to a 12" x 24" (I only had 3/4" plywood, you could use something thinner).
- Drill & 3/8" bit
- Saw: reciprocal, jig, circular, or Dremel
- String basic nylon, so long as it is strong (2 x 4' pieces)
- Simple knot ability
Step 1: Make Your Template and Cut
I traced the template onto the plywood and cut. I used a reciprocal saw, but a jig, circular saw or even a Dremel would have been sufficient.
Step 2: Drill Holes for Rope
I positioned the first pair of holes just below the start of my first lace on both sides of the shoe.
I positioned the second set of holes approx 1/2 inch in front of my arch.
Step 3: Bindings
I placed my shoe in the first loop, and set two simple knots to lock that fit in place.
For the next set of knots I used a simple knot on one end, and another knot that will catch on the first knot, giving a snug fit.
