In the annals of geek culture, icons like Mark Zuckerberg and even Steve Jobs have illustrated the power and allure of the flip-flop as slacker staple. Now that symbol of long nights of cramming and coding gets a cleverly tech-infused update.
Designed by Thailand shoe company Kito, the Keyboard Flip-Flops quite literally put computer keyboards on your feet. Of course the keyboards don't actually work, but they're realistic enough to give onlookers a reason to take a second glance. Will you potentially look really stupid to the fashion forward? Yes, quite possibly. But for a price of just $1.20 a pair, a few weird looks is worth having the most hacker-friendly feet in your neighborhood.
If you're still on the style guide fence, check out Kito's video promotion for the flip-flops, which adds a bit of YouTube tech flare to the otherwise exotic footwear.
