Nike has a lot of interesting R & D ideas that it likes to implement once in a while and release onto the market. It seems that Nike's traditional and renown Benassi slip-on sandals got morphed with sneakers in this latest offering called the Nike Benassi Slip shoes. The shoes have a sort of hybrid twist as if they are not only sneakers, slip-on wear, but stylish shoes to boot. And get this, they are unisex as well, so both you and your significant other can sport them and feel good about being in shoes that are gender-neutral.
The shoes have a very interesting appearance because depending on if you look at them from what angle they appear either as sneakers, slippers or athletic shoes. When looking at them from the top down, for instance, and seeing their large strap, they appear as slippers or slip-ons. However, when looking at them from a side angle or from behind, they appear as sneakers with a very athletic and functional looking midsole. There is also a nice variation in colors no matter which variant of the shoes you go with. However, let's not get carried away with their style. They are very functional as well in the design.
Nike Benassi Slip offers a one-piece suede upper as well as an upper suede strap for comfort; a collapsible heel with a very easy put-on and take-off time; a comfort sock liner for a very supportive cushion; mesh covers for breathability and ventilation; as well as a suede upper with reduced irritation. There is a lot to like here when it comes to sneakers. They are lightweight, flexible and have pretty good traction. This makes them good for a variety of activities besides just every-day wear.
