There's only one problem: the soles get torn up walking on anything but grass and they get soaking wet and tear even easier when it rains. Not to mention they slide on rocks and road paint when they're wet. Now, store-bought mocs sometimes have a rubber sole sewn onto them. Then again, store-bought mocs cost upwards of five times what my kit cost.
I present to you now a low cost alternative that should prolong the life of your moccasins and hopefully keep your feet dryer and add some traction.
Step 1: Materials
- (1) pair of clean moccasins (my kit was ~$14)
- (1) can of Plasti-Dip (or similar) rubberized tool dip ($11 at Ace Hardware)
- rough-grit sandpaper
- 30" or more aluminum foil
- (4) pairs of socks
- (4) soda/beer bottles (empty or not)
- newpaper to lay down
