Footwear brand Crocs and fashion brand Bodega have teamed up on an unusual shoe: The All-Terrain "NICT-TECH" Clog. Inspired by nictitating membranes (the translucent secondary eyelids some animals have beneath their main eyelids), Bodega's designers pictured a similarly fast-deploying membrane that would serve a function. They conceived of a pouch that would straddle the top of the shoe:
They then designed a retractable hood concealed beneath the pouch that could be deployed in times of rain.
The result: "A woven nylonpouch featuring heritage branding, a rugged zip pull, and adjustable bungee toggle, as well as a retractable woven nylonhood secured by snaps and a toe anchor."
