 Posted: Thu Nov 24, 2005 2:03 am    Post subject: Shoes How does one go about isolating a shoe? The major problem I'm having is it isn't uniform like a sphere. I've been trying to do grip isolations so far...should I try holding it by the heel? Like a Fixed Point Isolation of the heel of the shoe? The toe will swivel around the Fixed Point then. Would that be isolating a shoe? Any ideas would be appreciated._________________I am, therefore I think.

Thats one way of isolating a shoe.

You could hold the shoe by the heal and toe with your finger tips. You could then isolate say the sole by rotating the shoe around a center axis( between both sets of fingers) while manipulating it so the neck or openning turns and travels correctly in relation to the isolated point(the axis made between the hands.). Kinda an ecentric rotation.

Or you can do just about the same thing. But this time, instead of the rotating point acting like a propeller/rotating shaft. Its acts as a swinging hinge. The hinge is locacted in the toe of the shoe or wrist.

And theres atleast one way to create inchworm/caterpiller traveling motions. These are based on isolation

Which brings me to body ice-o-lations.

just a thought you can do balances with your shoes if your stuck without a prop to manipulate.
