Introducing anti-Lego slippers.
The extra-padded, red-and-yellow slip-ons were created to shield your unsuspecting feet from the jagged, colourful bricks. The slippers are also square-toed, so parents can quickly and easily slip them on and off without figuring out left from right. (They also look like over-sized bricks.)

To make the slippers, Lego teamed up with French advertising agency Brand Station, who unveiled the design on Facebook last week.
While parents are no doubt thrilled about this new invention, there is some bad news. Brand Station will only be making 1,500 pairs to be given away at random to those who fill out a Christmas wish list on Lego France’s website. That means you need to be French in order to win a pair of these highly-coveted anti-Lego slippers. (Sorry, Canucks!)
Despite this downside, parents have been sharing their amusement over the toy maker's invention on social media. One Twitter user joked:
Lego releases anti-Lego brick slippers. One step closer to a world without pain. #LEGO— Samah Saadi (@SamahSaadi) November 15, 2015
Others shared their excitment, adding:
About time!! LEGO just created slippers to avoid that excruciating pain when stepping on the pieces. pic.twitter.com/bgv0UFc3WG— John Regefalk (@caputmundicibus) November 12, 2015
