Intro: LIGHT UP SHOES

DO YOU WISH YOU COULD SEE IN THE DARK WHILE YOU ARE WALKING ... AT THE SAME TIME?! 
WELL LIKE ALL HUMANS, I THINK WE DONT HAVE THE ABILITY TO SEE IN THE DARK, SO WE HAVE THIS PROBLEM. 
THE PROBLEM.... TO SEE WHERE WE ARE WALKING WITH OUT HOLDING A FLASH LIGHT TO YOUR FEET. 

SUPPLIES: 

SHOES
BATTERIES 
WIRE
LED LIGHTS 
TOOLS :
HAMMER
KNIFE 
NEEDLE NOSE PLAYERS
DREMEL

 

Step 1: YOU NEED a SHOE!

WE HAD A LEFT OVER SHOE THAT WE USED FOR THIS PROJECT, FOR THIS PURPOSE WE CHOSE A SHOE THAT HAD A BOTTOM COMPARTMENT TO HIDE THE BATTERIES. 

Step 2: CUT THE HOLE FOR THE BATTERY COMPARTMENT

THIS HOLE CAN BE MADE WITH THE DERMAL TOOL IS GOING TO BE A LITTLE HARD TO MAKE A HOLE THROUGH THE RUBBER.

Step 3: WIRE CUTTING!

Step 4: SOLDERING !

Step 5: PAINTING!!!

ADD THE PAINT TO THE SHOES!  SO THAT IT LOOKS ALRIGHT! 

Step 6: FINISHED!

JUST TURN ON THE SWITCH TO "ON" AND THERE YOU GO! 
PS: THEY ARE NOT .... WATER PROF SO DON'T GO OUT IN THE RAIN.

    Where are the lights? Walking with batteries mounted in the sole or bottom of the shoe feels like you are walking with a rock in your shoe.

    there are holes that the shoe has under the sole... so you wouldn't feel the batteries, and there will be more work done on it... thanks for the motivation :)
