OK, here’s the product announcement:
“Timberland, an American manufacturer of outer wear, has created a pair of hiking shoes that can be easily folded using light and flexible materials. The shoe is water-repellent and has fleece inner-lining . The sole of the shoe is made from 42% recycled materials and features a zipper running around it. The shoe can be securely zipped and conveniently packed into a bag or small compartment. The Timberland ‘Radler Trail Camp’ hiking shoes only weighs 9 ounces (255 grams) and retails for $65.”
Now, I ask you – of what use are these? You can’t actually wear them for hiking, then zip them up & stow them away. The zippers would get clogged in mud and the dirty soles form the outside of the zippered package. Plus they certainly don’t appear to offer any ankle support. I don’t get them – do you??
