Everybody wants to walk like a big man, right?

Well, we also like to avoid blisters. In this video I took some platforms off of old boots and attached them to some comfy sneakers.

NOTE: You will loose the stability that a lace-up boot provides for your ankles.
<p>Duuuuude!! u rock! thank u 4 the added idea of using screws to crank 'em down nice n firm. i don't trust glue alone. i'm going to try it AND i think i'll even heat the screw up so it melts the rubber a bit upon entry to create a little extra &quot;grab&quot; + adhesion. hoping to help prevent it from loosening from frequent wear as time goes forward. and the fake fur??? get outta my head!!</p>
When I embarked on the search for DIY ideas on making my own platforms for boots I already have, I never expected the pleasure and entertainment of your video *smiles* Absolutely superb, thank you so much for sharing this! Made my day!
LOL <br>Awesome! <br>Thanks for the inspiration. <br>Hyper pink!!
I have nothing constructive to add... just want to say that now I /really/ regret throwing away my two fallen-apart pairs of platforms :D<br><br>also: YAY! pink fluffy shirtless man! i am now more cheerful for having seen this video
&nbsp;Nice Instructable LOVE the boots...........
That's awesome I will have to try that for my first year at the Burn in 2010.
Those look SWEET! I'd totally turn my ankle, though.
Yeah, I'd totally be like: "Dance dance dance.... *CRACK*....Oh God! The pain!"
<sigh> I remember when I had abs. </sigh>
ohh fairy floss hair awesome! (oft) any ways awesome platforms! *thumbs up*
Oooohhh!!!! That is so cool. I just love the look on the cops faces and those silly protesters looking uneasy in the background.
you remind me a lot of my husband.
Did I ever tell you, You're my hero :)
awww, Thank you!! ((HUG))
I think I love you! Awesome job and very economically savvy. Nice work, my friend.
{laughing}<br/><br/>the drummer w/ whom i live does this <em><strong>all</strong></em> the time.<br/><br/>we have been together for years but i am sure this activity predated me.<br/><br/>[me &amp; my hundred pairs of platform shoes, but nevermind that.]<br/><br/>i thought that this might be a tape he made in secret. for no reason. [double edged meaning purposefully stated herein, hereupon.] especially when i read:<br/><br/><em>You must terrify your neighbors.</em><br/><br/>he gets told stuff like that too. me too. if i said which silent movie actor's wife hung garlic on her door to ward away my exhusband &amp; myself, tho, this would be stating entirely too much.<br/><br/>
You must terrify your neighbors. Not that that's a bad thing. XD Dear god the pink THE PINK
if you wana make any pair of shoes more comfortable cut a layer of mole skin to put inside them it's an old boy scout trick I learnd when I was younger and belive me it comes in handy if you have to hike 5-10 miles
funny,but cool I like to try different things..
Tres cool this gives me a great Ideal for an old pair of boots I have.
great idea! love it
