Im doing I’m first build, but I’ve spent the past probably 3 days straight working on my shoes and getting everything right. However since you’re doing a Jun build the shoes are quite different than my MK6 shoes.I dont really need extra height, but that could be fun to add a few inches.
i have a pepped paper model and a very basic foam prototype
Have you (or anyone) done trooping in non-hinged shoes? Does it feel comfortable to walk?
If you point me in the direction of the files you’re using I’ll load them into my cad software tomorrow and see how everything will look.
Upon first look, I think that they would have to be hinged in some way because they look solid all the way through with no gaps in the reference photos.
That is if you want maximum walking comfort.
On second thought if you want to gain a few inches, then you could make solid platforms and just build a non hinged shoe around it. You would loose comfort, but could gain a few inches.
Personally I decided to go the comfort route.
