Sandals to complete your ATGATT wardrobe
 
Now you can be a sandal wearing hooligan and STILL be ATGATT! That right...you heard me SANDALS!!!

It is a sandal specifically designed and engineered for bikers (actually they are for "bickers" as per the web site - maybe that's how they get around any liability issues!). The built-in features are engineered for foot protection and comfort while riding a bike.

Now if I could only find me some "bicker" safe shorts and tees I'd be all set!!!:lol3

Something about grinding off the three outer toes in a low-side makes me squemish.

Other than that, perfect.

They're marketing this to the poor bastards that live in Bangladesh. I think the top speed through that city is like 3 mph. :lol3

I'd actually like a pair for my beach cruiser on the boardwalk. Can't be too safe on the old bicycle.:lol3 They have that nifty "toe guard" feature.

This is a joke. Right?

Some products are so ill-conceived they just sound like a joke.

Reminds me of the neck holsters for concealed carry guns.

Fantabulous place to aim a loaded weapon, no?

Just ordered a pair. Can't wait to get them. They will compliment my skid lid and tee-shirt perfectly.


Thanks for the link!
