I wrote up a a quick blog post to comment on all the little things I learned in the process that might save others some time. I sure hope this is the right place to post this cuz I couldnt find any better area.

This is awesome. Great write up! I'm currently in the process of making these. I am also going to sew the flora to the tongue since my shoes have straps to hide it.

Did you just twist and tape the cat5 cable to the conductive thread on the velostat?

Has anyone else tried to use the frs they sell on the website as the sensor instead of velostat.

So pumped to get these put together.
