A tent in your shoes?!

Posted on: November 19, 2013

Yes!

walking-shelter-shoes-sibling-1.jpeg.662x0_q100_crop-scaleThat is exactly what Sibling, an Australian company, thought of. A pair of sneakers with an integrated shelter!

Whether it’s for a camping/hiking/exercising trip or just a run around town when you are uncertain of the weather (one second it’s windy, then rainy, then snowy!), these are the shoes for you!walking-shelter-shoes-sibling-2

“Stored compactly in integrated net pockets within the shoe, the shelter expands out and around the body to form an enclosure that relies on the human frame as a supporting structure.”

I like these walking shelters!
