How to make your own shoes
Imagine if the economy collapsed, there would be a number of items that would become very popular very quickly. For me, they would be shoes.
I have always worn through shoes fast. When I was a kid my mother would get very frustrated when she had to buy shoes twice as often as the other moms.
When I thought about it, shoes would be a very high commodity in an emergency situation. They would be pretty hard to come by and would be something that you’d need to get around. And even if you weren’t in an emergency situation, you could save yourself some money by making custom shoes for you and your family. So, without further adieu, here are some instructions on how to make your own shoes.

Duct Tape Shoes
You could even make shoes out of duct tape! In an episode of Myth Busters, hosts Jaime and Adam are marooned on an island with nothing but a pallet of duct tape. They make a lot of things, anywhere from water bags to shoes.
You can create sandals that are rugged and durable with your old tires. Just use the cutout image on a tire and use nylon straps to bind them together. Click on the images to the side to get a more detailed look at the cut out.
