This is so cool! I just bought some duct tape and I'm gonna make these to go with my duct tape hat.

Later: I made these, and got through one shoe. It was too tight, bendy, and rather painful. No fault of the instructable, of course, but if you make these, make them a little bigger than you think you'll need them. also, I would recommend making the sticky lip on the straps very small and just attaching them with more tape to avoid an ugly ridge around the shoe. Great instructable though, maybe I'll try again sometime.

I am going to make this soon! So awesome!

I like the slip-on version (this one) better than the one with laces.

It would be awesome to make these with clear tape. You're at school, and the principal is all like "Oh Em Gee, you aren't wearing shoes, STFU AND GTFO and get to my office NEOW!"
"Oh, but I AM wearing shoes, see?"
"Grrr...How dare you make a fool of me! Next time, vengeance shall be mine!" *herp*

That would be funny....hehehe -rubs hands evilly-

Hehe. I just might try that...
Dparedes1031 made it!1 year ago

So I just did this... It turned out awkward. Ugh... I've worked with tape for 2 years... I figured I'd be able to do it. Oh well... :/
