We all know better than to leave our children or pets locked inside the car on a scorching summer day, no matter how short the errand.
The greenhouse effect resulting in intensely hot temperatures inside your sealed vehicle can fry everything like Shrinky Dinks.
You remember – the kids’ activity kit consisting of polystyrene cut-outs that reduce in size inside the oven?
Yeah, it was how kids actually played in the dark ages long before tablets possessed their innocence, but I digress.
That is essentially what happened to Twitter user AK when she left her Nike slides, the popular comfort sandal, inside her car.
At first glance, she thought little invaders pulled a Cinderella-move by fleeing and leaving behind evidence of their intrusion.
“If y’all wanna know how my day is going (And I’m sure you do)… As I’m getting into my car I see these little a** shoes in my backseat. I’m thinking whose damn kids been in my car????”
A closer study revealed a horror of horrors.
“So I look at the shoe and it’s a mf size 9.”

No matter what Nike’s slogan about not giving up against all the odds inspires us to do, it won’t apply here.
For a better perspective, our bitter friend tried them on for size.
Call the police; people are dropping dead!

Those who are still with us spared her further humiliation with some encouragement.

I wasn’t the only one who used Shrinky Dinks as an example.
See, they did exist!
Apparently, they're made out of the same material as Shrinky Dinks 🤣 pic.twitter.com/iLBf4rPflo

Nike consumers were disappointed while others confirmed the quality level of the popular athletic wear.
Are you surprised??? As all @Nike stuff are crap Quality.

Lesson learned: If you love something, never leave them locked up inside your microwave on wheels.
A couple of users saw the bigger crime was in this fashion faux pas.
Why are you wearing socks and sandals? Absolutely ridiculous
— Matt (@MattGrainger81) August 24, 2019
No one wears slides with socks, be gone with you
— Oliver kennedy (@Liveforeverrkid) August 24, 2019
