First invented in 1932, LEGO’s have been a favorite “building block” of children for decades. Most parents know all too well the pain endured by stepping on one of these plastic squares. Recently, LEGO announced the arrival of their new slippers, designed to protect the feet of parents who may accidentally step on one of those much-loved LEGO’s – and of course, they’re comfortable as well.
As distributors of wholesale footwear around the world, we find much of the footwear news interesting – even amazing, in some cases. This is one story we were particularly interested in; who would have thought the LEGO brand would create slippers to help parents of little ones protect their feet from searing pain? According to news reports at Footwear News and the Huffington Post, LEGO teamed with Brand Station, a French advertising agency, in designing the slippers with extra padding. However, if you’re hoping to get a pair for Christmas, don’t hold your breath – Brand Station is rumored to have limited production to only 1,500 pairs, which will be randomly distributed to those who complete a Christmas wish list on the France LEGO website.
If you are lucky enough to be awarded a pair, the LEGO padded slippers are square-shaped and perhaps not surprisingly look like a LEGO, colored with the iconic red and yellow colors the toy company is known for. According to social media promotions, these slippers make it possible for parents to walk around the house at night without a care. Who would have dreamed it? The “ultimate Christmas gift for parents” is extremely limited, so if you’re interested you should head over to the website now – if it’s not already too late.
Just like most other consumer products, footwear has evolved over the decades with most styles being quite different from what our parents and grandparents wore. Today’s styles are classic, chic, funky, casual, designed for various weather elements, and are a huge element of most people’s wardrobes, not simply functional as they once were.
