“Do you have these in 11? They feel a little big.”

From Reuters:
A penguin called Elvis wears a new pair of blue shoes at the Antarctic Centre’s Penguin Encounter display in Christchurch, November 7, 2006. Elvis and 16 other penguins who arrived at the International Antarctic Centre in September have been given specially designed shoes after several penguins developed sore feet in their new home, according to Antarctic Centre director Richard Benton. Picture taken November 7, 2006.

I like the color. It’s very Antarcticadian.

If the Antarctic Centre’s Penguin Encounter is supposed to simulate the actual atmosphere penguins live in, why not just get rid of the river rocks and give the poor li’l guys some snow!

Probably costs too much to maintain the snow and ice. The energy costs and the added labor costs are likely prohibitive.

Even a flat surface as opposed to the river rock would be preferable I think though. That shouldn’t be expensive.

The movie Happy Feet could have a sequel called Sore Feet.
