What the UGG!?

Oh my.
I was perusing through Journeys Spring catalogue this morning and found something utterly disgusting.
$50 FLIP FLOPS. But not just any flip flops, UGG flip flops! I I thought to myself, "WHY would any idiot spend that much on such a boring pair of FLIP FLOPS? If I really so desperately desired a pair of flip flops I could go down to Old Navy and buy 2 pairs for $5. However I'd be far more likely to invest in an actual PAIR OF SANDALS.

So I ask...would you pay $50 for these?

Also I'm trying to decide between these two pairs of shoes for my birthday (which is April 29!):

Which do you think I should get? I just can't decide!

what the ugg indeed! so stupid.
although those do look somewhat...like, streamlined so they're probably advertising how it's super comfortable and whatnot.

hard pick. they are both so awesome for diff reasons! =( hmmmmmmmmmmm maybe the 2nd one though? the first while cute and i love the print, might not stand out from afar, and *could* come across as very 'young'.

I wouldn't spend 50 dollars on flip flops anyway, no matter the brand. I have mixed feelings about uggs anyway...if worn the right way, they can be cute! I like the first paair of shoes....but then again the second ones are so bright!! Sorry, not much help...

Ugggg to the Uggs. I only wear the boots cause they're comfortable.

I love the first pair! Where did you see them cause I think I want to buy the first pair now.

I adore the comic print ones.
I am always boggled when people want to spend lots of money on flip flops. Think about it--they're spending tons of money on shoes that they can't even wear to nice places!

I'd just buy cheap flip flops.. they'll serve their prupose so that makes me happy.

I have an infinite love for keds and those colors are sweet, so I'd get those bad boys

the third one is my dream shoe! it is so CUTE! but the thing is its WHITE and that won't last a second in my world. I think I will wait until they come out with a darker color.

Vanessa said...

don't think those sandals are worth it... and i'm not a big fan of keds but i think you should go with those other than the converse
