Flip Flop Storage
How great would it be if you could head to the beach or pool without having to worry about a safe place to store your wallet and credit cards?
Consider it done. SlotFlops, which debuted earlier this year, have a thin, flexible cushioned foot bed with natural arch support -- aided by a strategically placed “slot,” capable of holding an ID, a few credit cards or a key.
The fleshed-out flip flops are available in men’s and women’s sizes in six colors. Available at Brookstone or via the brand’s website, SlotFlops retail for $25.95.
This is not the first time that a flip flop has added storage. Some may recall the “Stash” flip flop by Reef that debuted in 2007. That iteration was pulled off shelves for speculative reasons including concerns over consumers using the casual footwear to carry illegal drugs -- and worries that the flip flops could be used to hide explosives (a la shoe bomber Richard Reid).
