Strapless shoes, sticky soles…

Straplesssandals These aren’t so much "shoes" as they are the absence of shoes: and by that we mean "it’s a pair of soles that stick to your feet with some kind of foot adhesive." The makers say they’re perfect for those hot, summer days when you don’t want to get tan lines on your feet from your strappy sandals.

We say, "Yes, but we hope they really do peel off as easily as you say you do, or that’s a pretty weird situation you’re going to find yourself in."

Buy them here.

    I can’t be the only person who hates the feeling of having something stuck to the bottom of their feet – let alone a whole shoe!

    Hmmm… Why not just wear bare feet? It’s not as though you’d be able to walk too far in them – and I doubt you’d be able to take them to the beach – think of the SAND!

    I’ll be in bangladesh this summer, 45°C and about 99% humidity, I wonder if they’d still stick? (and I think amelia really has a point with the sand here…)

    Seems to me that something that will stick in temps where you actually would wear these would be horribly uncomfortable in those same temps. I HATE when it is super hot and sticky and things stick to my skin–I cannot imagine these being comfortable ever, let alone on that sort of day. Seems like you would be better off with that mesh tan through stuff that they make swim suits out of. Of course I hate flip flops in general so maybe I am not the sort to have an opinion on this.

    I just can’t imagine that tan lines on your feet are really that big of an issue with people. Who really cares that much?

    oddly, if you go to the site and scroll down all the various sizes you can buy Foot Jewelery, which seems to me to negate the whole No Tan Lines thing.
    Then again, they are Australian…
