    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.

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

    Reminds me of the neck holsters for concealed carry guns.

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


    Thanks for the link!
