WTF??? 4

Shoes that transform into sandals in seconds could end footwear confusion
By Daily Mail Reporter

Unpredictable summers can make choosing the right footwear well nigh impossible.
A pair of stylish sandals might seem the best way to avoid sweaty socks, but if the heavens open you are left trudging home with distinctly damp feet.
Now a shoe company has come up with an ingenious solution to get the best of both worlds - shoes that transform into sandals with a flick of a zip.

The Nat-2 design looks like a regular pair of canvas shoes, similar to popular designs by the Converse brand.
But when you want to give your feet a bit of fresh air you can unzip the sole to reveal a pair of sandals.
The canvas top can easily be folded up and slipped into a bag.
With more than 20 different designs available, you can mix and match soles with different uppers.
The concept of transforming shoes is sure to bring out the inner child in those who grew up playing with Transformers in the 1980s.
However, unlike the ubiquitous plastic robots, the Nat-2 is much harder to track down. The only place selling them in Britain is Wild Goose, in Twickenham, South-West London, where you can pick up a pair for £59.99.
