Almost every laptop bag manufacturer now has a version that’s claimed to be airport security-friendly, meaning you don’t actually have to remove your laptop from the case when it passes through scanners and x-ray machines. And since it’s now the norm for everyone to have to also remove their shoes when dealing with security, it looks like footwear manufacturers have taken a cue from the laptop bag makers.
adidas’ new SLVR S-M-L Concept shoes are not actually a concept, but are available for sale ($140) from adidas’ SLVR online store in just three sizes: small, medium and large, hence their name. Based on the description on their website the shoes are the perfect accessory when flying since they feature a 4-way stretch mesh upper making them particularly easy to repeatedly slip on and off, or stash away in a carry-on bag. And because even the soles of the shoes are stretchable, it allows adidas to release in them just 3 unisex sizes covering everything from men’s UK size 4 to 12.
