They're 99.9% effective.

We already know that being protected at all times is seriously important and that's why we're introducing you to the latest in condom technology the, um, shoe condom.

Wait, it's not what you think! It's basically a condom… but for your feet. The rubber shield is to protect your shoes from dirt and grime.

Everyone is calling out this new "consent condom" that needs four hands to open it

We've all been there. We've unboxed our new, shiny white pair of trainers and decided to unleash them on the world. But then the worst happens… it rains, you get splashed by a murky puddle and ketchup squirts from your burger and somehow trickles onto your feet. Before you know it your once pristine kicks are now a depressing shade of grey.

Well, no more. Firebox have the solution, a condom that goes over your shoe and protects them from pretty much anything.

Unlike slipping a supermarket carrier bag over your shoes, these are transparent, so you can still show off your trainers whilst keeping them sparkling. And just like your bog standard condoms, the rubber case easily slips over your foot and shields your shoes from any grime that may come its way.

The condoms are waterproof, splash-proof, machine washable, dishwasher safe and they even come with grips on the bottom to stop you slipping over – perfect for festival season. They're reusable too, just slide them off, whack them in the machine and use again. However, a gentle reminder that you really should NOT be doing that with regular condoms.


The condoms are priced at £7.99 and come in UK shoe sizes 2.5 - 11, which isn't too bad for the satisfaction that you'll never have to see a splash on your shoes again.

They're not the only condoms in the range either, Firebox also sell wine condoms to create a water-tight seal on opened bottles.


Guys, it's time to wrap up.
