The holiday season is nigh, so thank whomever you believe in for the French advertising agency Brand Station, which has just pulled off a most useful media stunt. The company has constructed what they call “ultra-padded” slippers, to help weary parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, and just plain Lego enthusiasts to avoid stepping on Lego bricks. Because as anyone who has encountered a plastic brick with bare feet can tell you—those little suckers hurt.

Tragically, Brand Station has created only 1,500 pairs of these ingenious slippers. Lego lovers can enter for a chance to win a pair when they fill out a Christmas wish list on Lego’s French website.

Happy stepping!
