Step 1: How to Make Them!
- Old Shoes
- Large Sacks of Googly Eyes (Michael's for like 4 bucks)
- Hot Glue Gun
- Lots of sticks of Hot Glue
- Take a Hot Glue Gun!
- Make sure it is on the highest heat setting ( previous tests with lower heats lead to googly eyes that fell off more)
- Put a small drop on the back of an eye, and glue it on the shoe
- Cover the whole shoe!
You should plan on a touch up stage, as the main way to know where the flex zones are that things will just always pop off come from wearing them around a bit.
Step 2: What Happens When You Wear Them
You saw the video at the front. They make a fun squishy sound wherever you go!
I have been testing them for nearly 2 months and the adherence rate is suprising. I would say that at least 70% of the eyes won't fall off. Most fall off near the toe or the outside edges. If you ride a bike the inner edges are at risk.
But! Don't fear the fall-offs! People will find googly eyes in random places and smirk pleasantly knowing you have been there (note: don't use these shoes to carry out illicit affairs).
They are good for dancing and give you a bit of a tap-shoe like maraca feedback!
