Believe me, I was never a penguin before…lolx. But many of us did have Happy Feet anyway.
At one time decades ago, kampong folks decided to give retired tyres a new lease of life, by fashioning them into sandals. I suspect it could 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 our feet. They were a novelty and looked pretty cool (though some people thought they were ugly). Walking around with these on made us feel great, though initially we tended to wobble a bit like those cute fellas in the movie.
Has anyone else tried these before?
