Would You Pay $175 for a Pair of Flip-Flops?
We found some pricey, new shoes within Walt Disney World Resort today, that beg the question. Would you pay $175 for a pair of flip-flops?
To be fair, these aren’t your average sandals. Havaianas branded, they feature crystals from Swarovski!
Living in Southern California for most of my life, flip-flops were a staple, worn year-round. In addition to obvious places like the beach, locals wear them out shopping, at Disney Parks, in weddings…
That being said, these would make a cute pair of wedding flip-flops for a beach ceremony! In that instance, the price tag would probably make more sense to some.
But, everybody has their own list of things they feel are worth splurging on. To each their own!
Let’s take a closer look at these new sandals. Our MickeyBlogger found them at BouTiki in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.
Disney World invites you to, “Say aloha to tropical trinkets, Hawaiian shirts, hotel logo and surf wear, ukuleles, and Disney character merchandise.”
Havaianas Swarovski Flip-Flops
Here’s an up-close look at the Swarovski crystals.
The sandals themselves feature a beautiful, rose gold color!
They’re displayed in a glass case, with signage that reads, “Havaianas crystal collection with crystals from Swarovski $175.00.”
The crystals are shaped as rounded triangles, with different sizes clustered together on the strap.
I must say, these are quite stunning! While “rubber” sandals like these are typically not the most pleasant to wear, the Havaianas brand is known for comfortability.
So, now that you know all of the details, what do you think? Would you pay $175 for a pair of flip-flops?
