#1- this is my first instructable, so I apologize if it isn't to a great standard of helpfulness.
#2- this isn't a complete instructable (yet!) so any advice, or suggestions you guys have, will be greatly appreciated. And of course, you will be acknowledged for helping out, that being side, let's get started!
Step 1: Materials
1/2 thick pieces of wood (slightly larger than your feet)
Polycarbonate shield (see step 4)
Small brass door style hinge
Step 2: Design
Step 3: Sole
Now, lumbering around this big piece of wood, would be a big pain. To combat this, I found out about where my foot bends, I then cut the wood in two, and connected them with a hinge, because I plan on padding it, I was too concerned with where the hinge goes, but you might want to take that into consideration, if you plan a different attack.
(In the dimensions picture, 10 1/4 should actually be 10 1/8. Remember kids, always check your trigonometry)
Step 4: Heel
The heel is about 3" high and the angle is 60 degrees. With the paper template, I then cut it apart wherever there was a fold. Which I then transferred to the material.
I originally wanted to use thin plywood for this part, but I lack the tools to cut it accurately. But luckily, I had a few polycarbonate face shields laying around (don't ask why). This material is nice. Because it's strong, but flexible, and can be cut with scissors. So I drew up the pieces, cut them out, and hot glued them to place. (They also hold hit glue quite well). I recommend gluing along the seams for extra strength.
