Online retailer Firebox has an unconventional solution for those who wish to keep their shoes clean and secure: contraception.
The company has debuted ‘Shoe Condoms’, protective rubbers for your feet. The product’s description details that it “protects your shoes from mud, mess and rain,” and serves as a “no-brainer” for pricy footwear. For good measure, the “condoms” also come with resealable pouches.
“You may be keeping your cock safe, but what about your creps?” Firebox asks. It proceeds to argue that while there are antibiotics for sexually-transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea, there is no solution for the pesky mud that gets into shoes.
To use these “condoms”, the wearer simply has to roll the rubbery sheaths onto to their footwear. Though the design is best for keeping white trainers clean, you can also use it on other silhouettes.
An accompanying video educates inexperienced users on how to “apply” the rubbers, claiming that it offers “99.9-percent protection against STDs (street-transmitted dirt).”
These “condoms” come in medium and large sizes, and are priced at £7.99 (US$10.13). For shoe lovers who want to better shield their precious footwear from bad weather or dirt on the ground, you can get the innovative product here.
