Havaianas. Another one of those dumb fads. What is the hype over these overpriced flip flops anyway?

Havaianas

Nine hundred bucks for a pair of rubber slippers? They’re not even that pretty! I didn’t have a shoegasm (slippergasm?) when I saw one. Filipinos (or should I say Filipinas?) are going agog over these expensive, overhyped flip flops especially since its Summer already.

What. The. Fuck.

Celebrities wearing the ugliest footwear on the planetThe world has gone mad.

Notice that Nicole and Faith look their ugliest in their croc-wearing-pictures on the left.

If you’ve seen Crocs on the street, you’d understand. Crocs are absolutely the ugliest footwear I’ve ever seen. Seeing hot pink crocs on a 40-something woman was beyond hilarious.. it was pitiful even. Kids wearing crocs are forgivable.. they look really cute on those tiny feet. However, if your kids look ugly then don’t even bother buying a pair. I wouldn’t pay a dime for something that costs that ugly (Php.1,800 to Php.3,000 for the ugly shoes and Php.150 to Php.250 for the accessories).
