    What material is this?

    Does anyone know what kind of material this is? I'm talking about the material in the heel/sole of this shoe. I was thinking of creating an enclosure for my PC components if I can find a block of whatever this is.

    Platform shoe

    hmmm maybe..I'll do a search on that. Would you think it is non-conductive?

    Ok you totally misunderstood that I hope.
    I am looking only for the material in that shoe. I want a block of it to carve out a case for my drives and such

    yes. in all reality, not that many materials are conductive, especially any kind of plastic or rubber...

    I kid, I kid!

    My guess is, whatever material that platform is made out of is a little too insulating (thermally). The last time I found myself in payless looking for platforms, most of them seemed to be rubber.

    thats also the concern I had. If it would hold in too much heat. I was thinking of creating a tray or something to hold my drives and route my wiring, then have my MB hidden underneath with only the fan and heatsink visible.

    Unless Sir Lancerlot is gay, but I don't think that is HIS shoe.





    I also think it is high density neoprene.
