Going once, twice -- soled!
By Lylah M. Alphonse, Globe Staff
When you're at the beach, do you slip your wallet into your bag and hope no one grabs it? Or do you keep it on you and stay out of the water? Women can keep the essentials -- a key, credit card, ID, and a little cash -- hidden in plain sight with a pair of these slick sandals by Reef. Appropriately called "Stash," the flip-flops have a slim, slide-out drawer hidden in the sole. They cost about $40 at Eastern Mountain Sports (1041 Commonwealth Ave., Boston; 617-254-4250) and online at ems.com, rei.com, and amazon.com. [More]
