We've seen some bizarre product from Chinese e-tailer Temu: A baseball cap with flip-down sunglasses on the back, some wild-looking sneakers.
Their latest strange footwear offering is these bizarre-looking Women's Bubble Slippers.
They're made from EVA foam, and fleece-lined.
The bubble pattern extends to the soles.
As usual, I can't figure out how they're making a profit: These are going for $8.18 a pair, including free shipping to the U.S.
They have to be operating at a loss, right? This is some kind of plot to clad us in silly gear, at any cost to them?
As early as Sep 2022, Bence Borbely has experimented with this kind of inflatable form factor. What's interesting is that the cycle from conceptual/high fashion to mass-produced items seems to have shortened dramatically.
hideous. stomach-turning, actually.
No, it really is that cheap to manufacture things like this in China, only usually when they get over here a US company marks them up by 1,000%.
