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!!!

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.

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?
