Here's a radical shoe design, the Nike Water Cat. They're super-light, sticky-rubberized for stepping in puddles large or small, and easily collapsible so they fit into a backpack without taking up much space.
Nobody is saying when these kicks will be available, but we're hoping they'll be ready in time for our Gizmodo whitewater rafting adventure this summer. Oh, you guys didn't hear about our whitewater rafting adventure? What do you mean you can't swim?
