(St. Louis, MO) -- A penguin at the St. Louis Zoo is getting a special pair of shoes to help with his arthritis.  

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports 30-year-old Enrique previously used medicine for calluses on the bottom of his feet, but it had to be reapplied every time he went for a swim.  

The black strap-on shoes with red grips have allowed Enrique to get around quicker without the need for much more medicine.
