This summer has been an extremely busy one as we traveled from Hawaii to the Adriatic coast of the Balkans and soon the Indian Ocean island nation of Mauritius. Thankfully, we’ve partnered up with ArchPort® to tide us through the summer waves and have a peace of mind when having fun at the beach.
ArchPort®’s new innovative product, Slotflops, are definitely one of the most creative and multi-functional travel products we’ve seen. They’re basically flip-flops with a slot (and protective card sleeve) that allows you to stash cash, credit cards or keys. To test them out, we brought them with us on our month-long journey in the Balkans where we spent most of our time wandering through the sun-kissed towns, and swimming in the Adriatic Sea.
Testing Them On the Beach
After a couple of weeks of intensive use on the beach in Croatia and Montenegro. we cannot be happier with the performance. Not only are these slippers as comfortable (if not more) as any other flip-flops, they’re lightweight and easy to carry. There is no obvious difference in weight or bulk when the flip-flops are fully loaded. In addition, the materials used for the strap and sole are sturdy and durable — which makes walking in them comfortable even on wet surfaces.
Although ArchPort® does not claim these shoes to be fully waterproof, we found that our cards were well-protected for the occasional splash or accidental fall-off-the-boat scenario. Slotflops allow you to swim in the sea without constantly worrying about your belongings getting stolen or being ruined by the seawater.
One tip when using these shoes on the beach is to leave them upside down while swimming. Not only they will look more like regular flip-flops, you will not burn your feet when wearing them afterwards. Overall we found these shoes to be extremely well-designed, comfortable and useful for a beach holiday or a casual summer stroll.
