I am going to show you how to make your very own pair of Slide Skates. Slide Skating is a new sport that I thought of. It allows the user to do really cool looking tricks like grinds, without having a lot of experience in extreme sports.
- I want to apologize for the quality of the pictures because my digital camera is broken, but hopefully a video will make up the difference.
Step 1: Gather the Materials
Step 2: Prepare the Folder.
Step 3: Trace the Trace
Step 4: Cutting the Traces.
Step 5: Attaching the Skate to the Shoe.
If you want to remove the skates at one time or another, then I would recommend using Velcro or duct tape to stick the skate to the bottom of your shoe.
If they are old shoes that you do not wish to keep anymore, then go ahead and use hot glue, gorilla glue, or any other heavy duty adhesive to be sure that the skates do not fall off. Using glue would be your best bet, but not everyone wants to trash a pair of shoes. The glue will make sure that the skates do not fall off when you are shredding the streets and doing some hardcore tricks.
I used duct tape to make mine. I rolled the duct tape into long rolls as pictured below in figure (a) then stuck my shoes to the skates.
Step 6: Put Them on and Start Shredding!
