Happy Feet

Believe me, I was never a penguin before…lolx.   But we did have Happy Feet too.

At one time decades ago, sandals fashioned out of expired tyres came in vogue among the kampong folks.   I guess it must have been the owner of the sole tyre service shop who introduced that idea.   Every guy in our home had a pair.

Ergonomically, these footwear were a near-heresy by today’s standards — the inside surface contour was a total mismatch with that of the sole of the feet.  But it was a novelty and looked pretty cool.  Walking around with these on made us feel delighted, though initially we tended to wobble a bit like those cute fellas in the movie.

Has anyone else tried these before ?
