Ski Buoys

The water shoe, formally known as ski buoys was first created in 1970 by Larry V. Crabtree. The Kitchener man's invention was intended for walk on water. They allow the wearer to glide forward, but backwards momentum is restricted making for better traction. His summer creation was made using a combination of wood and fiberglass.
