Sliding-sole, slip-ons get you half as far with twice the effort.
Do you walk or run for exercise but find that you end up so far from home that youre too tired to get back? With slipshoes, youll only cover half the distance while getting the same workout as before.
They feature durable, elastic uppers and thin soles, each with a central, tank tread-like belt
with adjustable, friction slippage. The sole only slips backwards, which means that each step becomes a half step, and you move like Jacko doing the moonwalk forwards.
So slip on a pair to slither down to the corner candy store for a well-earned 200-calorie treat after your half-hour, half-block hike.
