“Man, I love the convenience and comfort of my slides, but man, I wish they just had a big fat zipper pocket on the strap,” is a thing no one has said in all of mankind’s storied history of questionable fashion. Thank goodness, then, that Nike and DJ Benny Benassi came up with these slides that have fanny packs built right in. Yeesh.
Oh, and if you were worried that neon green was your only option, fear not, because these babies have multiple colorways:

We’re trying to imagine a scenario where you could use such an item: Maybe you’re out with some friends, it’s late, the mini mart on the corner is closed, and your tracksuit/dress/tapered sweater you overpaid for doesn’t have any pockets? Boom, out with the fanny pack slides and you’re good to go. Easy storage for your wallet, phone, keys, whatever. (h/t Fast Company)
The only thing that can’t fit in these pockets is the out-sized reputation you’ll earn for wearing slides with—it’s worth repeating—a fanny pack on them.
