Figuring out where to stash your cash and credit cards for a visit to the beach can be a real drag.
A bag is a clear option – but on the downside, thieves are attracted to backpacks and handbags.
Matt Potts, a US-based inventor has come up with a novel solution to the problem. He’s created a pair of flip-flops with a small draw in each arch, which he calls SlotFlops.
Potts says each compartment has room for around three credit cards. That space could be used to store a mix of credit cards, identification, cash and even small keys.
The draws are made of the same material as the flip-flop sole, so they aren’t obvious to the casual eye. For us, that makes a pair of SlotFlops a decent – obviously not perfect! – hideaway for valuables.
Currently they’re only available from the SlotFlops site. There are three women’s sizes: small (U.S. size 6 to 7.5), medium (U.S. size 8 to 9) and large (U.S. size 9.5 to 10.5). There are four men’s sizes: medium (U.S. size 7.5 to 9), large (U.S. size 9.5 to 10.5), X-large (U.S. size 11 to 12) and XX-large (U.S. size 12.5 to 14).
There’s a choice of six colours. A pair will set you back $25.95 (not including shipping).
