Multi-Purpose Shoes Make Beach Drinking Easier

My beach-ware of choice is Reef.  And they’ve come up with an interested invention–shoes with build in bottle openers.

I usually remember to bring a bottle opener with me, but I’ve definitely had it go missing too.  It can fall into the sand and then… well, it’ll be an artifact for a future generation to find some day.

Just don’t let someone be too vigorous with opening beverages with your shoe–you don’t want to sacrifice the sole!

Reef used to have a shoe with a built-in safe as well (for your valuables).  My guess is that product didn’t fare too well once people actually took it into the ocean.

Now all I need is an easier way to make margaritas on the beach…. and I’m set.

  3. If you really want to be smart you wouldn’t take glass bottles to any beach, pool or lake I’m thinking. +1 on the wear them in he toilet, street, condom on the beach or mud puddle and it takes away my interest in a hurry 🙂
