teva sandals, the lamest, dorkiest sandal of all time just got a little nerdier. just when you thought teva’s with socks was the worst it could get, teva introduces a new sandal with a led light on it.
the teva illum (msrp: $50), a state-of-the- art flip-flop complete with waterproof, detachable led lights connected to the straps. the illum replaces the headlamp with the pedlamp to create “the glow from below,” a convenient and practical way to avoid the pitfalls of stumbling around in the dark.
the newly engineered topsole material and microfiber strap lining make the sandals appealing to the feet during daylight hours and the spider365 rubber outsole offers plenty of traction. but it’s at night when the illum truly shines, leaving darkness a step behind.
get it: at rei (1416 platte st.) or teva.com

Certainly the world has seen its share of ugly babies. I could tell you of a child I saw just last week … well, let’s just move on. Undoubtedly, despite the way that child looked, we are sure it’s mother loved it just the same. And so it is with ugly cars.
For reasons known only to God and the executive committees that approved them, ugly cars exist in nature. And in spite of their often ungainly and grotesque countenances, somebody loves them. So let’s celebrate that unconditional love by taking a closer look at the pantheon of cars only their mother could love.
Ugly Car No. 1: AMC Pacer
Sure, this is the go-to ugly car, but it is the go-to because it was so ugly. Looking something like an upside-down cereal bowl balancing on toothpicks, the Pacer’s body was way too big for its undersized tires. To that, you can add positively enormous side glass, windshield and backlight, allowing you a very good look at the idiot who bought it. Inside, the over-long six-cylinder engine intrudes into the passenger compartment because when AMC designed it, they thought it would be equipped with a more compact, rotary engine. (more…)
