On Saturday evening, President George Vella unveiled a Sliema monument paying tribute to the lives of elderly individuals who lost their lives during the COVID-19 pandemic and the resilient ones who withstood such a difficult period.

In a speech addressed below the monument, Vella remarked that the pandemic was harsher on the elderly as they had to experience months of separation and lack of physical contact. He also called for politics which are more active and inclusive towards the local elderly community.

The President thanked the Maltese Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics for the initiative and their work amongst the elderly.

Sneaker brand releases new shoes made from unused sex toys

The international sneaker game seems to be getting vaster and more interesting every single year but Los Angeles-based brand ‘Rose In Good Faith’ has launched a line of sneakers which not only captures your attention, but saves the world doing it.

That’s right; the brand’s latest model ‘Plastic Soul’ is the brainchild of a partnership with sex toy manufacturer Doc Johnson to make shoes out of damaged or defective sex toys.

The chunky foam-based shoe is equally stylish as it is sustainable, made from a complex recycling system where the unused sex toys were ground into millimeter-sized cubes, mixed with bleach then molded into the classy silhouette seen on the brand’s social media pages.

Costing a retail price of around $130, Rose in Good Faith boss David Teitelbaum highlighted how the shoe tells a story and inspires a new perspective on up-cycling while Doc Johnson COO argued that the pair promotes sexy positivity through fashion and innovation.
