The granddaddy of slides get luxx’ed up

While we normally don’t talk about slippers (or slides for the hypebeasts) on this site, the new collection of Adilettes from adidas caught our attention. The design basically looks the same as all Adilettes made since 1972, but it is a small detail that made us go “really now, adidas?”

You read that right: They are made in Italy.

They are not made in China nor made in Vietnam. Instead, they are actually made in Italy, AND they have a relatively competitive Php 1,600 price tag! For reference, the Gucci slides (which took inspiration from the Adilette) is also made in Italy and costs Php 12,000. So is the Adilette “Made in Italy” a steal? Definitely! Watch our thoughts on this “affordable hype” pair of slides in the video below:
