When I read about Kimberlycun‘s Gisele Bundchen Ipanema sandals and how comfortable they were, I knew I had to check them out as my current pair of sandals are on the brink of giving up. Unfortunately, I did not have time to look at them locally, so during my weekend in Singapore, I went to track them down.
I finally found them at a Royal Sporting House store (also sold at Royal Sporting House in Malaysia) but they were out of my size in the sandals. I did try on the flip flops which were very comfortable.
The Gisele Bundchen line of flip flops and sandals is of course, inspired by the model of the same name. The sandals and flip flops are really soft and comfy on the feet. The foot bed was soft and flexible which I can expect would make for a good walking experience.
However, I overheard a girl saying as she tried on the flip flops “So nice, but I might as well get Bata!”
And you know what? I’d probably do the same. Bata flip flops aren’t as pretty on the feet but the prices are. That said, the Gisele Bundchen Ipanema sandals were sold out all over Singapore and the ones I did find were too small or too big for me.
The Gisele Bundchen flip flops and sandals retail for S$23.90 to S$39.90 and Kimberly says the sandals are RM69.90 in Malaysia. I’m tempted, I’m not saying I’m not. So, I’m staying far far away from Royal Sporting House for now. 😉
