A look? Or a flop? (Picture: Nike)The rise of the bumbag has been unstoppable.
Once the accessory of deeply uncool, 80s mums, the bumbag has taken on a new life as the must-have for festival-goers, influencers and fashionistas alike.
But is this a step too far? Nike have released a new range of sliders that feature a teeny tiny bumbag that rests atop your foot.
Why? We hear you asking. But maybe shoes that double as tiny bags are set to be the next big thing – it would be a handy place to keep your keys after all.
This is actually the second summer of Nike’s flip-flop/bumbag collaboration. Last year they brought out neon designs, perfect for chilling by the pool – this year they have been updated with bold patterns.
Think of the things you could keep in those tiny pouches (Picture: Nike)One colorway features a black rubber sole dressed with a yellow, blue, white and green tropical floral print, while the other has a bright pink sole with a black bumbag adorned with neon green, pink, blue and white doodles.
They could be this summer’s festival must-have (Picture: Nike)The affixed, zippered pouch works as an actual functioning bag – perfect for storing emergency cash, or lip gloss.
Sliders are always a classic summer look – easy to wear with trousers, skirts or just swimwear – they add a relaxed edge to any warm weather look. So these novel items are likely to be popular.
The shoes are selling for £42.96 on the Nike website, alongside plenty of other Benassi slider iconic designs.
But are they actually wearable? The jury is still out.
