Go Strapless

Nike Strapless Swim Goggles
Inventors: Rob Bruce, Dylan Van Atta
Availability: Spring 2005, $25 a pair

These Nike swim goggles use disposable adhesive strips to stay in place and keep water out, even after a dive. An extra angled pane maximizes your field of vision without distorting the view, and—serious swimmers take note—they produce zero drag, so they're even faster than the naked eye. The medical-grade glue on the strips is engineered to bond comfortably with your flesh on one side and the polycarbonate lenses on the other. Still, putting the goggles on and taking them off can be a chore.
