I found some images online of shoes (slippers) made from jeans, but I couldn't find any tutorials!
so I played around, and made these out of some old acid washed jeans. They have two layers of white sticky-white crafts foam as a soul, and added black craft foam pads to the heel and ball of foot. I just sewed the craft foam right to the edge of the shoe. I use the belt looped waist as the edging, and the back of each shoe has a belt loop. toes of shoes where made from back pockets.

Those turned out really well. What a great use for an old pair of jeans.  I'll be interested to know how durable the plastic is that you used for the sole and heel.
