Aqua is footwear designed to enhance your foot awareness by providing an unfamiliar walking experience. Multiple cavities containing water are connected so that while walking, the applied pressure creates a fitted shoe that still allows for your foot muscles to function.
Walking on water forces the user to leave their confort zone and provides them with a new perspective on their walking patterns once they return to walking on solid ground.

Material: PVC, hardware and fabric laces.
