Loose weight with Marlon Brando shoes
Unknown to many Marlon Brando was an inventor of gadgets. He conceived among other things a "friction sandal" designed to exercise the leg muscles. The shoes were acrylic with wooden blocks on the side supporting the ankles and making it more difficult to walk. The actor invented the shoes to help him control his weight and wore them in the shallow end of his pool at his home in California. Now a Hong Kong-based shoe manufacturer, K-Tone want to produce a line of "Marlon Balance" shoes.
