Labels (with a protective authenticity stamp) : Slippers immediately produce a very pleasant feeling, the material from which they are made is of high quality, the rubber is well molded, there is practically no flash: Flip flops arrived in a branded package:
On the elastic bands that hold the flip flops on the leg, there is even a marking of the size and for which leg they are intended:

Slippers fit true to size, the sole itself protrudes slightly beyond the foot.
Most likely, rubber slippers with a characteristic jumper between the big and second toes, initially began to be imported into the country from Vietnam, with which the Soviet Union established diplomatic relations in 1950, and then a number of cooperation and trade agreements were signed, and only then set up their own production.

Sole made of foam material, quite elastic, but not oak, after compression it completely restores its shape, although I suppose that gradually, with prolonged wear, the sole will sag a little and take the shape of the foot.

The inscriptions and printing are also well done, the color is bright, the pattern is without artifacts:
better adhesion of the foot to the surface and water drainage:
On a plastic hook and even with pieces of foam flex:
