Lego has finally found a solution for the worst thing about Lego

As loved as the famous toy product really is, it’s an absolute fact that - after the upturned electric plug - they’re the sworn, mortal enemy of your feet.

The type of spiteful bricky bastards that will go right out of their way to cause you undue pain just because you may have not cleaned up after yourself.

Lurking, in plain sight yet seemingly invisible to the naked eye, in constant anticipation of being stood on so they can transmit the kind of raw pain usually reserved for child birth.

Okay, it’s not that bad, but it’s still up there in the pain stakes.

Mercifully, LEGO has created a solution – super slippers.

Yup. It seems quite obvious now but working with Brand Station the toy company has designed its own slippers with a model that's not only ‘interchangeable’ between right and left feet (why isn’t more footwear like this?) but have an extreme amount of padding in their insoles.

Meaning your fragile tootsies are safer than gold in Fort Knox. You could basically stomp around like Godzilla, crushing tiny LEGO buildings and you’d be just fine.

1,500 pairs of the slippers have been created and will be given away at random to people that fill out this form on LEGO France’s website.

Here’s hoping they role them out for the masses.
