Tell Us About This Shoe...

Not much information was passed along with this photo. Is this a Quix shoe? That was my first guess, what's yours? It looks like it's a big shoe on a big foot, but maybe it's a tiny foot and it's actually an Imprint and just looks yellow? Thanks for your help!

Looks like an Imprint to me! The hospital ones come in white so maybe? Unless they took the mold and made into a Quix shoe?

That’s an imprint shoe on your blog today. more info can be found here. It was the quix shoe before the quix shoe.
I have used imprints prior to going to Paul's (Paul Goodness, Forging Ahead) then I began using the reverse Mustads. Now that they have been discontinued I may have to go back to the imprints. I doubt it will be a popular thing here in the us but I do think it is a great shoe with countless options.

Oh I forgot it is yellow because it is a urethane so like Equipak in the bottom of a foot they absorb urine and manure that discolors it
