Step 7: Removing and Relacing the Flip-Flop Straps
The general design for all Flip-Flops is the same, so this part of the project is pretty straight forward.
Start by removing the original uncomfortable plastic strap by pushing the large diameter rubber pieces out of the bottom and cutting them with the pocket knife. Some will be harder than others. Don't throw away the plastic, but measure it instead, and cut an appropriate amount of Paracord plus some, about two feet this time. Never cut too little. Fold it in half, and thread it threw one of the two holes in the back, following the picture as a guide. Bring both lengths forward, and make sure they are appropriately proportioned to the original plastic strap. When you come to the front, take a pinch out of the bottom rope, and force it through the toe hole. Tie a knot in the bottom and follow the pictures for a guide. make sure the cord that will be going between your toes is long enough. Keep it proportional. From there, lace it back through the other hole in the back. Again, proportion to the original strap is key.
