Over time, the stilts on the bottom (Ha) wear down. So that you won't have to throw away the whole pair, I've made these to be tough, with replaceable Ha so you can enjoy them indefinitely.
Try not to look directly at my feet --long day at work and too tired to get them picture ready... •_•
Here's how I made them!
Step 1: Puzzle Pieces
-Wooden post or stick
-Clothesline twine (nylon)
Cut the plywood to the size you need, and make it so your heels hang juuuust slightly over the back ledge. Cut the teeth from the wooden post to be juuuust a bit narrower than the width of the slippers.
Step 2: Mark and drill
Drill the toe-strap slightly bigger than the 2 heel-straps. This is because the toe-strap holds two pieces of twine.
Step 3: Sand!
After that's done...
Step 4: Fit the Teeth!
You want to countersink the heads of the screws so they don't scrape and wear off from expected ground wear and tear.
Then make marks on the bottom of the Getas for where your screws and teeth will go. Then simply screw them on, TIGHTLY.
*Consider this: It's probably best to place the front Ha just under the ball of your feet, and the rear Ha just slightly forward of your heel. It makes it so the rolling action of your foot (whilst walking) is transferred to the base points of the Geta, and it'll give your calf muscles less fatigue. I'd tell you to trust me on this, but we all have different feet...
