Step 1: Materials: 2 cans, sturdy tape, shoes

This one's low on supplies but high on the goofy meter. A few observations though:
1. the stilts feel all around more comfortable and safer with shoes (rather than barefoot attachment to the stilts).
2. a strap system could be used instead of tape. an instructable of this system might be posted laiter, but a liberal application of tape takes 5 minutes and seems strudy enough.

Step 2: Attach shoes to can with tape

It is easier to first tape a shoe to a can before it is on your foot. Loosely tape on and then attach to foot and finish the job.

Attach the shoe to the "bottom" closed side of the can.
