Here’s a hot new item for the summer: the fanny pack sandal. You can walk and get wet, all while carrying money in case of an emergency.
These beauties are made by Nike and they’re called “Benassi JDI Fanny Pack” slide sandals. Nike’s marketing department wants us to know we can stash our keys and other small items in the zipped pocket. Damn it, I was hoping my shoes could also hold my phone and sunglasses.
I can’t decide if I like them or not. I like the Kelly green flat, but I was never a fanny pack lover in the first place. And now they’re coming back in the form of shoes? It’s obviously not being carried around your fanny, so what can we call these? Toe totes? Inside insoles? Midfoot zips? I hope this Benassi character who works at Nike (he or she obviously came up with the clever JDI Fanny Pack name) gets a bonus for naming the hot summer product of 2018.
We don’t have a release date yet for these sandals, yet I can’t help but wonder how long it will take for them to be sold at the nearest Nike outlet.
