You can be that traveler that only packs one pair of shoes (cue collective gasp). Shooz—a company that created “the world’s first modular-tech travel shoe”—has made this a reality with its clever (and stylish) customizable footwear, at a price that won’t break the bank. And after launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise the money, the shoes are officially in production and ready for pre order.

Shooz are comprised of two interchangeable parts: a detachable top or “skin,” and a sole. The pieces zip together seamlessly and have a waterproof design to keep out unwanted water or humidity, perfect for those times when weather can be unpredictable. The reason every traveler should add a pair to their holiday wish list: they’re incredibly easy to pack. The top skins lie flat in luggage and only take up the space of a t-shirt, so you can have multiple styles while taking up minimal space. The skins and soles come in varying designs, from an Italian leather brogue to a lace-up runner, meaning you can dress them up or down with a quick zip.
