Summertime Mogul Toy of the Day: The World’s Most Expensive Flip-Flops
11:49 am, August 9th | by Sylvie Krekow
If you think Louboutins and Jimmy Choos are pricey, you’re definitely not ready for the newest Chipko sandal — which costs $18,000, making them the world’s priciest flip-flops. And they aren’t even diamond-encrusted.
Each (slightly psychedelic) ‘flop is hand-pained by noted Los Angeles artist David Palmer, according to a press release that Mogulite came across. Of course that means you probably won’t ever be able to wear them. But still, they’re kind of pretty right? A conversation starter to say the least?
So, since you can’t really hit the beach with these, what makes them worth buying? Well, if you’re a mogul and a philanthropist, you can fulfill your good deed of the day by purchasing a pair — once you do Chipko will use the proceeds to help protect 100,000 square feet of endangered rainforest land.
Don’t have the dough to fork over a couple thousand for a whacky pair of sandals? You can still buy one of their less expensive models and they’ll save 100 square feet of endangered rainforest. Totally groovy, Chipko.
