Transformer / shoes

Transformer

Walking on the rainy day,you may worry about wetting your shoes and trousers being splashed mud.That is due to the capillary effect between sole and ground bringing mud instantly.
We find that geta,the oriental traditional shoes,avoids these problems because of its special structure.How to make the ordinary shoes prevent splashing as getas do?
We propose the design of adding two T-type bars into the sole of each shoe.You can wear them as ordinary shoes on sunny days,and when it raining,just getting out the bars and putting them back upside down,you can get a pair of "modern getas".Then go for a walk in the rain now.
