I searched to see if I could find any other bottom lit shoes on instructables and couldn't so here we go...
I'm gonna make another instructable for this LED vest too which has a stroke sensor on the chest that controls the speed which the LEDs blink. I'l attach a link once I make it.
Step 1: Materials
taller the sole the better in my opinion but it only needs to be tall enough for an LED of your choosing to fit inside. I used a style of shoe called "Creepers". They came already glow in the dark but I think it really adds something special to the end result so if you want yours to glow in the dark too then pick up some high quality glow in the dark paint.
LEDs --- I used ultra bright 10mm blue LEDs (2 in each shoe)
Resistors--- for the leds I was using I needed a 100 ohm 1/4 watt resistor in each shoe
9V snap connector---
***If you want to use different LEDs than the ones I used and need help determining what resistance and power supply you need, this site is useful: http://led.linear1.org/led.wiz
Wire strippers--- are convenient but a sharp blade can work too
Linoleum cutters---will work best for caving in to sole of shoe to lay wire. They can be found at any art store. They are pictured below...But I imagine you could find a number of tools handy for this job...
Drill--- The bit needs to be a tad bigger than the diameter of the LED you are using
