This isn't the first time a simple canvas shoe has made waves in the fashion community. Rubber Duck, this summer's version of the Easys, Chuck Taylors, or Keds of yesteryear, is being donned by everyone from high-design wearing uptown gals (admittedly, to the grocery store and whatnot) to downtown fashionista's whose wardrobes host a variety of price points. The funny thing, the unsurprising thing, is the discrepancy in price point. Where OAK and Zappos sell their Rubber Duck slip-ons for close to sixty dollars, Shoes.com (thank you for that brilliant name) is retailing them at around half that price. Furthermore, we've seen vendors selling them for twenty on the weekends in Nolita. So, let's just take it in stride. Let's take it as another obvious example of being loyal to a store, not because of their prices, but because of their taste. Let's also take it as an example of the summertime shoe that costs less than a dollar to make, but still lures us in somehow (oh, i'll add these to my shopping cart), time and time again.
