While plastic/rubber/vinyl shoes used to be a novelty as far as designer brands are concerned, it’s no longer the case with more and more variations hitting the marketplace. Next month, you’ll find at your local boutique the Gucci Marola Green Ballerina collection, which are made 100% bio-plastic, a biodegradable material that’s part of Frida Giannini’s eco-friendly footwear initiative.
Available in 4 different colours (Blush, Taupe, Black and another one in Black with a white GG logo motif), each pair features swirly cut-out details which looks pretty good and is a definite step-up in my opinion as far as casual footwear is concerned.
Priced at SGD220 a pair (affordable too, no?), the only piece of advice I’ll be dispensing is to get yourself on the wait list pronto since they are pretty much guaranteed to
run fly off the shelves as soon as they are launched.
