Teva, a company I once mistakenly associated with quality footwear, is coming out with a pair of sandals called the ‘Illum’ which feature LED flashlights on the straps, supposedly making it easier to traverse the beach at night. Now I’m sure the sandals are well-made, and it’s nice that the LEDs can be removed and attached to a keychain as needed, but seriously? I can honestly say I’ve survived many a walks at night in sandals without the aid of miniature headlights strapped to my feet, not to mention that I can’t think of a more inconvenient place to put a flashlight. “What was that?! Did you see it?! Here, let me balance on one foot and point my sandal into those bushes for a better look!” $60 a pair, available sometime in May.
