The $230 Givenchy Jelly Sandal And Different Uber-expensive Rubber Shoes
However okay, the designer sandals were cute, effectively-made (for rubber) and snug. They usually made for attimo ferragamo comparatively low cost label-flaunting.
However now issues have gotten slightly out of hand. This summer time, Givenchy is pushing a brand new mannequin of jelly sandal — featuring a strip of chain throughout the toes — priced at a whopping $230. The Chain-Detail Jelly Sandal is, design-wise, much like its predecessor, with its gladiator-fashion, ankle-buckle styling. So are we to presume that the “chain element” justifies its $eighty value hike Suspect, indeed.
And, unfortunately, other designer brands have adopted Givenchy down this overpriced-rubber-sneakers path (although they have not been so daring as to bust the $200 value barrier).
See by Chloe has a $150 vibrant-pink gladiator jelly in the marketplace, Salvatore Ferragamo is promoting a sparkly, girlish clear jelly for $140 and Stuart Weitzman has the “Blingy Peep-toe” clear jelly sandal at present on sale for $110.60 at Bloomingdale’s, down from $158.
I, for one, will be scoring my summer season jellies from a sidewalk barrel in Chinatown — for around the same price as an In-N-Out burger.
