Love these. They are manufactured in Brazil and thus for some reason, for which I cannot pinpoint, look to me like they belong on the soccer field. It's a hybrid of sock meets water shoe.
Bical Grippers --- I love, love, love them. Totally practical, washable. Flexible rubber soles combined with the sock top make these shoes very unique. This style in particular is a great spin off of the canvas sneaker but giving the flexibility, stay on features an infant or toddler need for little growing feet.
