Italian brand Gucci’s latest fashion item has been receiving flak on social media. This time, the brand has come up with a pair of Crocs-like perforated rubber sandals. They are, however, being sold for a whopping $420 (Rs 30,660) for men, and $470 (Rs 34,220) for women.
The sandals have been launched in three colours — white, lilac, and black for women, and red, green, or blue for men. The sandals, of course, come with the signature GG logo. The monogram appears as a cut-out motif atop the sandals.

Those rubber Gucci sandals with the block heel are probably the ugliest shoe I’ve ever seen

Earlier, the brand was also criticised for selling an ivory white kurta-style kaftan with “floral embroidery and self-tile tassles” for over Rs 2 lakh. Desi netizens, of course, went berserk on seeing the price.
