Sandals from tires.

Years ago while I was in Colombia we came across a merchant selling the most uncomfortable looking sandals made from recycle car tires. I distinctly remember seeing the tread and metal wiring that made theme look especially painful. “My dad always told me,” an old friend of mine said “that if you can find a way to make money using old car tires you’d be a millionaire.” While I doubt the integrity of that statement I chalked the situation up to another gimmick perpetuated by tourist American’s who buy something exotic, when in actuality it’s just another simple thing we’ve long given up as something we could do ourselves.

Vegthreads has posted instructions on how to do just that.
