So Martina was browsing around on gmarket and she came across these awesome half slippers. At first, she thought they were for children, but as she scrolled down the pictures revealed something totally awesome…HALF SLIPPERS FOR HEEL PAIN! So the concept makes sense to ME (Martina) but not to Simon. I guess the idea is that your feet are arched one way for so long that they’re in serious pain, so by wearing these at home, your feet will return to a more natural state by stretching out the muscle the opposite way.

Teen Top Wearing Heels

Seriously: worst freaking marketing campaign ever.

The only thing is, it’s actually quite awkward to wear because your heels pound the ground and the rest of your feet are cushioned. Actually, barely cushioned…we thought it was memory foam, but it’s actually just a brick of hardness covered in a lovely fuzzy pink fabric. Sad panda is sad. But you know who else is sad? That one member of Teen Top that I actually like with the fluffy poodle perm. He’s sad ‘cause he’s wearing heels. Look, picture proof. I should send him some of these slippers.

Anyways, I (Simon writing now) had a kindof manpiphany half way through our filming because he realized he had almost bought these when he was in highschool…you’ll have to check the blooper footage for his whole story:

 

Anyone know what I’m talking about here? Jumpsoles, they were called, and I wanted them so bad as a kid, but never got them. Anyone here actually use them? I highly doubt it, because – for some reason – I don’t think basketball players listen to Kpop. In fact, if I could draw a Venn Diagram, with basketball players in the left circle, and Kpop lovers in the right, it’d look like this

^^P.S. That looks like a whale.
