While taking a walk around Hongdae I found these adorable wing sandals being sold on the street!
How cute are these??
I love it when the street vendors have random awesomeness for sale. Always check, sometimes they sell junk and sometimes you can find really good deals on cute things! You never know here ♥
The vendor was selling them for around 10,000won I believe! The fake leather material is nice and soft, however I ended up not snagging a pair because the ones they had out had REALLY long wings so they dragged on the ground when I walked T_T Maybe that’s why they had them so cheap. I should just go back and get the white ones though, because they are awesome *_* You can also find these all over Edae right now… went the day after and almost every shoe shop seemed to have some!
I managed to find them online too, so this style should be floating around Korea for the Summer if you want to buy a pair. Online they seem to go for around 15,000-20,000 won ($15-$20) which is still not bad at all since they felt very well made when I tried them on.
Online they also have a grey color for sale, nice! If you want to buy a pair off G-market you can find them from this seller HERE plus many others. If you would like to search for them yourself you can type 슬리퍼(slipper) or 샌들 (sandal) plus “Wing” in English and you will get several results. I have also spotted them in a dark orange color at some shops, but it is kinda ugly
The seller also had these really cute plastic ones with puff bows! I would buy these for a rainy soggy day, but it seems Korea’s rainy season is already over!! So short this year (not complaining.)
