NEW FOOT PADDLES MAY MAKE SWIMMING EASIER (Jul, 1934)

NEW FOOT PADDLES MAY MAKE SWIMMING EASIER

Easier swimming is said to be possible with a set of foot-paddles, recently invented. Fitted to the soles of special sandals, the paddles spread out with a downward or backward thrust of the leg and close with a forward or upward movement. They will be found especially helpful, it is believed, to water polo players and others who must make quick movements in the water or who find it necessary to tread water for long periods.

    I love that these shoes look just like the shoes used by Warner Bros cartoon characters. I want a pair… minus the flippers please.

    If I wore shorts often, I’d want these. They probably don’t look as good with jeans.
