Introduction: Duct Tape Shoes

This Instructable will show you how to make duct tape shoes.

This is my first instructable so please give me ideas on how to make my next one better:)

Step 1: Get Your Materials

For duct tape shoes, you will need...
~Duct Tape
~Cardboard
~Scissors
~A Pen
~Flip flops or shoes that fit you

Step 2: Trace Flip Flop or Shoe

Trace the flip flop or shoe onto the card board
make sure to trace both flip flops/ shoes or else you will have two of the same feet

Step 3: Cut Out

Cut out the shape from the cardboard

Step 4: Cover the Cardboard

cover the cardboard wit tape, make sure that the tape goes all the way over the cardboard, you will just cut it off to make it look better

Step 5: Cut the Extra Duct Tape Off

Cut the extra duct tape off so that it looks like a shoe

Step 6: Make the Strap for the Shoe

make a strap that goes on top of your foot

if you have questions, look at the pictures

Step 7: Attach More Straps

Attach more straps until you get to your toe.

Step 8: The Heel

Attach the heel

Take a piece of cardboard, and cover in duct tape

look at pictures to get more info

Step 9: Add Straps to the Side of the Shoe

add the straps that connect you the shoe and the straps

Step 10: Do the Next Shoe

You are done with the first shoe now so follow steps 4-9 to make the other shoe

Step 11: Put More Duct Tape on the Sole

The bottom of your shoe should be really messed up, so put duct tape on the bottom to make bottom less sticky

Later: I made these, and got through one shoe. It was too tight, bendy, and rather painful. No fault of the instructable, of course, but if you make these, make them a little bigger than you think you'll need them. also, I would recommend making the sticky lip on the straps very small and just attaching them with more tape to avoid an ugly ridge around the shoe. Great instructable though, maybe I'll try again sometime.

No, ducks just work at the ductape factory and use their magic to make it.
