Daub / Children Health Shoes


In some arid and poor areas, children always get infected in feet or even are exposed to life threat for having no shoes. Sand hoppers are common in some arid and poor areas, and they lay eggs frequently. If children’s feet lack protection from shoes, their feet are worn with small holes by the eggs of sand hoppers. These shoes capable of being smeared on feet soles are mainly made of silica gel, gelatin and some antibacterial materials. During use, smear the shoes on feet soles, let it solidify for about 5min, and then wearers can walk on ground. These shoes only need to be torn off directly after use.
