550 Paracord is arguably the most multi-function material ever. It's easy to find hundreds of Instructables on it's uses, but I set out to find something that hadn't been done yet. What didn't I find??? Paracord Foot Wear!! But why not? They'd be incredibly rugged and in one of those "survival situations" you have about 40 Feet of cord in one shoe. They don't look half bad either. Maybe there wasn't an Instructable, but there is now :-)
Step 1: Materials
This design is based off an existing sandal. Making a sole out of nothing but Paracord would have been a little much, so I recycled an old pair.
Also, this Instructable contains two designs. In the second you replace the old shoes with an old pair of flip-flops.
-One pair of shoes (Preferable Sandals), new or old, with a sturdy sole.
-100 feet of Paracord to be safe. As many colors as you like. (I picked black and white for contrast)
-The basics of any project, duct tape (Just in case) and a Swiss Army Knife (Scissors could stand in).
-A hot glue gun.
-Matches and a candle, or a lighter. Either will do.
-Access to a sink if you intend to clean the shoe components.
