These are the coolest things since jumping stilts themselves! www.allstilts.com will have them fore sale soon. You can make your rubber pads/hooves/feet last forever or at least a very long time.All you do is find some tire tread that is used for retreading truck tires and be sure you find one with a small tread pattern for optimal grip.You can either add them to your powerisers or other jumping stilts that don't have changeable rubber feet or add them to your pads that can be changed. Just cut the tire a little bigger than your rubber pads then scuff up the rubber on the back of the tire and on the front of you pads.I used tremco vulkem 116 caulking/polyurethane sealant witch you can get in different colors ,you can also use other polyurethane sealants as well. Add the sealant to your rubber pad or piece of truck tire. If your putting them on your removable pads then screw them on from behind your pads and through the tire rubber if you are putting them on non removable stilts then screw the other way through the front .Start at the front and work your way to the back just don't put them where the wear of your rubber pads are that way you wont feel them when you walk on them leave them for a couple of days and they will set solid .Then if you want to you can cut the rubber of to the size of your pads with an carpet knife. You now have a pair of pads that will last a good long time I've been jumping on mine for months and you cant even tell I've used them. The best part about them is they wont slip in wet grass or wet pavement and you Can even use them in the dirt when it is wet,you don't have to put your jumping stilts away because of a bit of rain and practising on the grass is a lot safer. We do a lot of jumping around late at night when it is cooler and the grass is moist with dew. I will be selling them online eventually as well once i get a bunch made up at www.allstilts.com .
