Whilst these shoes are no Havaianas, they do serve an Indiana Jones-esque purpose of allowing you to discover buried trash dirty cans treasure as you pad along the beach. Cleverly hidden in the right sandal is a copper coil, which attaches to a battery pack strapped to your right leg. The ring creates a magnetic field around the sole of the shoe, and when you pass over something metallic (within a 2 foot radius) the field is disrupted and the battery pack vibrates and flashes red.

Now you can go dig up whatever exciting thing is underfoot - making you the Nancy Drew of beach trash/lost wedding rings. They work off a 9 volt battery, and are sure to look...er, extremely stylish (?!) when teamed with that itsy bitsy bikini. They're $59.99 from Hammacher Schlemmer.
