CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Slides have been the latest craze the past few summers with retailers offering the sandal in a variety of patterns, colors and textures - from fluffy and furry, to metallic and graphic, summer is not complete without a new pair of slides. 

But what about slides that can also serve a purpose? Well Nike may have an answer to that with it's latest launch of the Benassi JDI Slides, called the Benassi “Fanny Pack” slide.

What does that mean?

Nike is combining two summer necessities - slides and fanny packs - making a functional summer item, that for some is a "must."

I mean, why wear a fanny pack around your waist, when you can just have one attached to your sandals?

The collection includes three vibrant color, black, black/pink and green/blue. The slides will offer an affixed zippered pouch acting as the strap across the top of the foot. The two-in-one fanny pack slides allows users to small items such as keys, cash, credit cards, IDs, etc.

So when can you get your hands on a pair, or two?

A Nike spokesperson confirmed for Yahoo Lifestyle that the slides are indeed launching this summer, but could not yet share additional details.

So now you just have to wait until they drop. Stay tuned.
