Are you in between standard pants sizes? Do you have to choose between draggin' or floods? Did you accidentally buy pants that are too long? Here's the fix.


Girls, go ahead, roll your eyes and ask "Why don't you just get pants that fit?" It's a guy thing.

Provided are 3 sizes. I recommend starting with the "Standard" and size up or down if necessary. It needs to be a tight fit to stay put, so you should just barely be able to get it on the back of your shoe.

why not make a skidguard for the pant cuffs themselves. Infomercial anyone?

That's a great idea, but from what I've learned making these clips (went through ~3 revisions before I got one that doesn't keep sliding off), easier said than done. You would have to design it in such a way that no matter how the foot comes down, it does not get under the shoe (or else ~crunch~). Incidentally, that's what frays the hem: getting stuck between the heel and the ground, causing you to walk on your own pants. Here's how it happens: as you pick up your foot to begin a new stride, you angle it forward. This allows the pants leg to slide down over your heel. The hem, with its seam on the inside of the leg, then catches on the shoe's tread, pulling it under your foot. The process repeats with each stride, pulling as much as 1" of fabric under the shoe.

The second issue is appearance. These clips are invisible under normal usage as the pants leg hangs down over the clip hiding it. A clip that goes over the hem could not be completely hidden, unless done in a clever fashion.

So usefull!!!
