Hermes mocked for new range of £335 designer FLIP FLOPS

DESIGNER label Hermes has received a barrage of criticism for a pair of up-market flip flops they're selling for a whopping £335.

The French fashion house's website claims the designer sandals come with "technical straps" - much to the amusement of social media users who pointed out the flip flops look just like a bog standard pair of cheap sandals.

Asda are selling their own very similar flip-flops for just £2The shoes are advertised as featuring a "foam sole" with a "calfskin lining" and "technical straps".

Critics on social media said they were little different from cheap rubber flip-flops shoppers could buy anywhere.

One wrote on Facebook: "Get that “clothes aisle in your local supermarket” look."

Another said: "No ostrich feathers, diamante studs or appropriation of the stylish working class. Just c**p flip-flops."

A pair of flip-flops is available on the Asda website for £2.

On Twitter, users blasted the shoes too.

One wrote: "What are they made of, gold?

"Some people are so stupid though they will actually part with over £300 for a pair of bog-standard flip-flops. Techincal straps, I ask you..."

Another user added: "No, just no," with a laughing emoji.

Another user compared them to a pair bought in Thailand for 100 Bhat (£2.70).
