Cast-Off Shoes Make Tires for “Rough Rider” Bicycle, 1931

If you don’t know what to do with your old shoes, here’s a suggestion—make bike wheels out of them. No less a unique stunt has been performed by Marie Glory, a well-known Parisian bicycling enthusiast, as the photo shows. The regular wheel has been dispensed with altogether, and the “shoe wheel” substituted.

Discarded shoes fitted on wooden spokes form wheel rims of this bike, made by Marie Glory. 

Each shoe is fitted over a form, which is in turn attached to the ends of a spoke, of which there are six on each wheel. Although these bike wheels are the last word in novelty, it cannot be said that they are the last word in comfortable riding. The inventor, however, enjoys the sport.
