Gucci’s $1,800 Fur Slippers Sold Out in LA, But Why?

+

We’re always one to support fashion over function, though it seems LA has taken this maxim to another level of lunacy. According to LA Mag, west coast fashionistas have cleared out the city’s entire stock of two unlikely Gucci shoes that one would assume to be footwear pariahs in such a hot climate.

Pulled from the luxury label’s fall collection, the kangaroo fur-lined leather horse bit loafer ($995) and fur slipper ($1,800) have been selling like mad in La La Land; both styles are officially sold out with only a few pairs of size 5 in Gucci’s Beverly Hills location.

Considering you can’t walk down the streets of LA without stopping every few blocks to comb these Muppet-looking shoes, we’re not sure who’d be responsible for such a hilariously random wipeout. The only valid excuse we see is for some bougie housewife to wear these creatures trudging around her monster mansion before bed—maybe even Tamra Barney from the Real Housewives of OC.
