I was inspired by what S02 has been doing and I thought that I would give a wearable NIKE MAG conversion a go.
I have my Mark Poon Mag's on order but in the mean time I have a left over dismantled pair from my other NIKE MAG project (see link)
I will be doing some things similar to S02's and some things a bit different. Like I won't be disassembeling the shoe as I fear that any glue used will not last over time or be durable to stress over time.
I started with the color/shiny fabric issue.
I have made one side just slightly darker/matte and the other side untouched.
Next I am going to install the EL inverter in the heel cup (which will sit flush with the back of the shoe) and I will be installing a tiny 12v battery instead of the bulky 9v.
Battery Size comparison:
I will also be using my plastic formed ankle bubbles:
Stay tuned for more.
