Shoes that transform into sandals at the pull of a zip

Posted on 1:19 PM by Sameer Shah

A shoe company has come up with a solution to those days when you cannot decide what to wear on your feet - shoes that turn into sandals.

With flick of a zip, the plimsoll-type footwear change into open-toed sandals perfect for hot summer days.

Nat-2's new transforming shoe could help save time deciding what shoe to wear The Nat-2 design looks like a regular pair of canvas shoes, similar to popular designs by the Converse brand.

But when you want to give your feet a bit of fresh air you can unzip the sole to reveal a pair of sandals.

The canvas top can easily be folded up and slipped into a bag.

With more than 20 different designs available, you can mix and match soles with different uppers.

However, the Nat-2 are much harder to track down. The only place selling them in Britain is Wild Goose, in Twickenham, South-West London, where you can pick up a pair for £59.99.

The owner Peter Pearce, 63, said: "We were the first to bring these shoes into this country in June, this year.

"We ordered almost 50 pairs at first and they are well on the way to selling out. The concept of the shoes is absolutely fantastic - and perfect for the summer. You get two pairs of shoes in one. The designer is always looking at new styles.

"We're planning to speak to him in the next month about new designs. It's early days for us but we're confident the Nat-2 shoes are going to be a big hit."

A spokesman for the shoes' German designers K&T, said: 'Imagine being dressed properly and comfy wherever and whenever. The brand Nat-2 makes it possible by using its patented two in one system.

All tops are interchangeable which allows one to combine colours, materials and styles.

"By taking one base and various tops you can save weight and gain more space while travelling the world."
