Well, I'll give you a whoot! :thumbsup

Now, put them on some platforms and stomp around the mall in them!

Those are nice!

I figure this is a good place to post this, as you seem to have the knowledge.

I've searched the forum over, and I can't find and anything on building platform boots outta foam. Any ideas?

I've never seen a well made pair of foam or wood platforms. You can buy destroyer leggings and platforms (pretty cheap, too) for the shells if that's what you're looking for. They have them at kissmuseum.com

Just ditch the vinyl dragon heads and add a decent set of Kydex or ABS shells.

Thanks! I'm really just talking about platforms in general. I've owned several pair of platform boots, and they are usually fairly uncomfortable. I was really just looking for a way to produce a foam platform that I could attatched to the bottom of a pair of new balance shoes and create a skin to go over them.
