Ever find yourself stumbling through a dark house at midnight while on a snack mission? Well, those days are over with the new Teva Illum sandals that include a snap-on LED light to light the way. Originally inspired by early-morning surfing dawn patrols where rocky beaches were annihilating toes and feet of surfers, the Teva Illum not only has two LED foot lights, but is also an entirely-new sandal.
I’ve long been a fan of the Teva Mush sandal, but the reality is they only last one season because the foam wears out so quickly. As a result of that and after surveying the market, Teva went back to the proverbial drawing board and have built what they feel is the worlds most advanced and functional sandals.
Features of the Teva Illum Sandals
- Detachable, waterproof LED Pedlamps
- Trek Dry strap lining for all-day comfort
- Spider365 rubber outsole
- New, durable topsole material
- MSRP: $60 (leather) and $50 (synthetic) – available May 1
With my flat feet, I get pretty picky when it comes to footwear–especially flip flops. There are only a few flops that work well with my feet, so we’ll have to see how the new Teva Illum sandals stand up. It is a little gimmicky, but I can see these being useful in the right situations, like using the bathroom at night while camping, surfing dawn patrols or wandering around a dark house in search of a midnight snack. How would you use them?
