Throw away your summer sandals — they're out, and textured foot stickers are IN.
Yup, you heard me. A new footwear brand called Nakefit wants you to throw away your shoes and trade them in for fancy adhesive foot stickers... and we might actually be sold.
Nakefit is a stick-on sole that you apply to the underside of your feet like a one-sided sock.
The hypoallergenic sticker, which reminds me of a very bright Band-aid, is waterproof, sweat-proof, and can protect your feet from hot sand and cuts.
And the promotional video is crazy brilliance. "Forget carrying around stupid flip flops and sandals," the odd narrator guy says.
The video shows a lot of cool people doing cool things, but, like, with no shoes. They're jumping on rocks and chilling in speedos. Also, everyone in the video is really, really, ridiculously good looking.
The best moment is when one guy tries to flirt with a girl on the beach, but is forced to run away since the sand is too hot. Then another guy who's wearing the Nakefit stickers is able to talk to her. So Nakefit = getting attractive women?
Regardless, the brand's Kickstarter campaign has surpassed its $22,395 goal — it's currently raised over $220,000.
The product does seem pretty cool, but I still have a few questions: Couldn't you still get athlete's foot? What should you do if one falls off while you're out rock jumping? Do you constantly have to carry them around with you? And do they have magnetic mating abilities like the video suggests?
Only time will tell. The future of foot stickers is officially here.
