Instead of wearing slippers and sandals, a new material may provide more comfort, with the same level of protection

A crowdfunding project on Kickstarter aims to get people to trade in slippers and sandals for adhesive pads that stick to feet. The adhesive pads easily tack on the soles, preventing wearers from getting injured by any loose items on the pavement or slipping on water. Called the Nakefit, the materials that consist of this pad are a secret but apparently very comfortable and effective. They are sturdy, waterproof and easy to take on or off.

The pads are disposable and wearers can keep them on for around 24 hours. Currently, there are a few colors and sizes available for all women, men and children. Nakefit makes it possible for people to feel like they’re walking barefoot but without any risk of injury. This makes it a great option for a day at the beach or the pool.
