Strapless Sandals that 'Stick' with your feet

Here's some piece of technology invading your footwear! Not sure whether to call it technology, but commonsense for sure. Topless Sandals or Flip-flops as they are called in Britain, have no straps to stick to your feet; other than a water based glue. No straps!

According to Nudesandals, the water based glue sticks to your feet, but it doesn't come off on your skin.
So if you like walking barefoot or avoid suntan lines and blisters on your feet, this may be for you.
The site doesn't mention how long the sandals would last, although it does say a regular brush with soap water is required to keep them sticky.

Already available in US and Australia, these nude sandals have been on sale in UK since the last few weeks under the slogan "flip-flops that don't flip or flop". They are available in five designs and retail for 12.50 British Pounds.

Well, I personally can't say how long it would last as I haven't seen or tested it but I'm damn sure this won't last a single day if someone wears them to travel by Mumbai's local trains.

These are available in Canada from Kerio Chic. I have two pairs and they really do work.
tara - Thanks for commenting and informing us.
Since you are using these sandals, do you have any idea about how long they last or stick?

Sorry to take so long to reply! Yes, the sandals last about a year or two (depending on how much you wear them). For the best stick, wash them each time you wear them and wash your feet too, even if they look clean!
