Link smashes the sneaker and flip-flop together to create a weird wearable outsole

The way-out-of-the-box skimpy shoe market slowed down considerably since the trendy barefoot days of fuzzy five-toed shoe socks and chainmail foot sleeves just a few years back. Lately, though, it feels like it might be making something of a comeback. We’ve seen a few oddball ultralight footwear concepts in recent months, and the Link flip-shoe is possibly the weirdest of them all, the lightest slice of footwear we’ve seen since adhesive foot pads. Designed to combine the advantages of flip-flops and sneakers into one, these “sole-based shoes” keep your feet free, cool and protected … and probably at the business end of an endless flurry of sneers and jokes.
