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.
