Cool New Product Serves Your Sole

Insoles are the new flip-flops? You be the judge! You know that you need to keep your feet protected in germ-filled places like the pool deck, shower and beach in order to stave off nasty surprises like foot fungus…but, you probably also know by now that flip-flops and other typical summer foot wear are a: not supportive and b: often slippery in wet environments. Not the best combo, to say the least.

Well, here’s some good new for you: my awesome wife just discovered a new Italian product (open disclaimer, we haven’t yet tried it ourselves) called Nakefit. It looks like an over-the-counter insole, but it sticks to the bottom of your foot, comes with grips to prevent slipping, it’s completely vegan so there are no concerns about animal cruelty, and, best of all, it’s waterproof so you can seamlessly transition from beach to pool to shower without having to worry about keeping the sole in place.

Currently, the technology is patent-pending and the product is only available on Kickstarter, but a pledge of 30 or more Euros will earn you a 10-pack of men’s or women’s soles (you’ll be asked about your size and color preference after the campaign is done.)

Let us know what you think, foot friends: if anyone has the inside scoop on this new product, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
