Yes, I am the person who laughed out loud at my mother when she swore that she'd never pay more than $100 for any article of clothing. ("What about a winter coat?", I asked, "or a suit?" She shot both of those ideas down.)
But seriously, Aldo, these are flip-flops. Made of 100% synthetic materials. You cannot seriously expect anyone to pay seventy dollars for flip-flops.
They're going to give you a blister on the side of your foot the first time you wear them, just like the $3.50 flip-flops from Old Navy, I promise.
