Here’s a pair of sandals that would make Inspector Gadget proud. You bought a six-pack to kick back and watch the sunset. Argh – but it’s imported beer with non-twist, bottle caps. “No problem,” Says your friend – taking off one of his flip flops and prying off the bottle cap with it. Classy.
For the sake of applauding innovation, let’s not ponder for a moment on how grody it is to take off a shoe that’s been all over town – walking in God know’s what – and rubbing the soul of that shoe over something you are about to put in your mouth…
I didn’t list this product just to make fun of it. The truth is, it could be very useful to college students who have to open up lots of beer at a moment’s notice, or even catering crews in the Outback.
Thankfully, it’s a pretty stylish flip flop that comes in a variety of colours and decorations. It’s not bad looking. Frankly, the bottle opener in the sole is more of a sales gimmick. And, who knows, it just could be a lifesaver on a date.
In any case, this is clever. It ranks right up there with the WiFi Thong – although, somewhat less hygienic. At least the WiFi Thong doesn’t really go in a plumber’s crack.
