Plastic Shoes, seriously. the upper is made of a metallic PVC material. the low has a purple clear sole and the high-top has a blue clear sole. the insole has layered cartoon eyes that look like fish scales as does the illustration on the top. I have to say these are kind of silly but not trashy. I think the colors are really fun. I don't like patent leather, but some how when it's plastic it's totally OK. I am worried about how scuffed up they will get and how durable the material is.
