neoprene or polychloroprene is a family of synthetic rubbers that are produced by polymerization of chloroprene. neoprene exhibits good chemical stability, and maintains flexibility over a wide temperature range. it is used in a wide variety of applications, such as laptop sleeves, orthopedic braces, electricalinsulation, liquid and sheet applied elastomeric membranes or flashings, and automotive fan belts.
these 'mirage' neoprene shoes are velcro fastened and reinforced with elastic around the heel. they are a classic water shoe, although there aren't any written rules to say this is gospel. i think they should be rocked out in the street equally as often.
no need to worry about melbournes wet weather approaching, these mirage neoprenes have got me covered......temporarily.

watercolour, also aquarelle from french, is a painting method. a watercolour is the medium or the resulting artwork in which the paints are made of pigments suspended in a water-soluble vehicle.
the traditional and most common support for watercolour paintings is paper; other supports include papyrus, bark papers, plastics, vellum or leather, fabric, wood, and canvas. watercolours are usually transparent, and appear luminous because the pigments are laid down in a relatively pure form with few fillers obscuring the pigment colours.

nb is also famous for the american footwear manufacturer "new balance" it was founded in 1906 as the new balance arch support company. eschewing expensive advertising campaigns, it has, nevertheless, grown to be one of the largest makers of sports footwear in the world. these classic trainers are winners in my bright eyes.
