One such young disco dancer from the Pacific Northwest had a brilliant idea for making those slides and spins as tight as possible. He created two round discs of plastic, each with a small bump in the center, creating a pivot point. The discs had adhesive on the back for sticking to the soles of shoes. As a result, dancers were able to slide and spin across the dance floor like never before!
We discovered a box of Disco Discs in an amazing thrift store in Tacoma, Washington several years ago. The store owner was in fact the inventor from so many years ago. He was reluctant to sell us the whole box of discs, as he had very few left, so we picked up 5 sets and have held on to them until now.
We have never used our Disco Discs so we can't honestly tell you that they work. We can't even vouch for how well the adhesive sticks to shoes, or how long they'll stay attached. What we can tell you is that this they are an extremely rare find from a crazy time in history. They are collector's items that would make an amazing addition to disco or 70's themed collection.
The discs measure 1.5 inches in diameter.
