Consider your summer shoe plans sorted, because Nike have a new range of sliders and they're going to change your life. The new 'Benassi sandals' are sweeping the internet due to their... unique style. Images were leaked on several fashion sites like Hypebeast and initially, people thought they must be a prank designed to go viral but it looks like they're real. The sandals come in bold colours and are styled like the usual 'slider' shoes, but they're got tiny little bum bags (fanny packs) sewn onto the top of each shoe and it really is something else. Some design genius has realised that when you go to the beach, you don't always have space for your change and your lip gloss inside your bikini. You have space for them inside your shoes.
Nike fans don't know whether to be annoyed or impressed by the new footwear, taking to Twitter to share their disbelief at the ground-breaking lengths the brand are going to by combining two bold 'ugly' items into one 'super-ugly' one. One user wrote "Shit is crazy as hell and genius at the same time" and another had big plans for his trips with the shoes, commenting "The Nike sliders with the fanny pack are looking like I can fit some fun size snickers in there....lol. Sold!"
Nike haven't announced an official release date yet, and the shoes have only been seen in leaked photos and not in the flesh. It's not even known if the zips work or if they're just for decoration, but its clear there'll be some online mutinies if there's no space for those fun-size Snickers. They're expected to come in three colours - green, pink and black, and other than the mini-fanny packs they're pretty much just a classic pair of Nike sliders with the brand's iconic logo on the sole. If you want to pick up a pair, you might have to join the queue because Twitter is seriously excited... as one user wrote: "This summer is going places I never could've imagined." Dream big, guy.
