Just when we thought socks and sliders had brought dad fashion to the mainstream, Nike has gone one better with these beauties.
Streetwear seems to be borrowing a lot from so bad theyre kinda good styles at the moment (take this shirt on a t-shirt from Balenciaga, for example) so your verdict on these will all depend on your tastes.
The Nike Benassi has the classic slider sandal look, but with a useful fanny pack on the front.
Reminiscent of those novelty flip-flops with a bottle opener on the bottom – but this time its fashion, darling – theyre dual use as shoes and somewhere to carry your keys.
The collection is called Fanny Pack, and has three options.
They come in black and grey, or you can go for a more jazzy 80s look with the green and aqua or pink and black colourways.
Fans seem pretty convinced that these are straight fire.

Why am I not even questioning the fact that I am ready to shell out some cash for those new @Nike “Fanny Pack” sliders…. Its not even up for debate in my opinion. This summer is going places I never couldve imagined.

Theres not an exact price or release date yet, as these have just been leaked on streetwear forums and websites, but Hypebeast have confirmed these will hit retailers soon.
Theyd better get a move on for the holiday season, as I reckon these would be a total hit in Ibiza once the season starts.
Accessorise your dad bod with this dad footwear, and keep snacks with you on the go. Sounds like the dream.
