Remember when Urban Outfitters sold old-school hair balls and Murray’s Hair Pomade for a ridiculous price this past summer? Well, shoe designer Jeffrey Campbell is following in those foot steps. This week the company posted this photo and caption on their Instagram page.

If I recall, these “Rosebay White House Slippers” look a lot like the $5 slippers that were sold in just about every beauty supply store in urban neighborhoods when I was a teenager. Back then, they weren’t called house slippers, they were called “Chinese Slippers”. Although Jeffrey Campbell didn’t list a price for the slippers yet, I can assure you that with shoes ranging from $150 to over $300, Jeffrey Campbell has no plans on selling these slippers for $5.  In fact, these slippers are actually selling for $1 at flea markets, urban beauty supply stores, and dollar stores today.

When followers called out the shoe company on trying to make a hefty profit off of something that has already been done, the company responded by saying that these slippers are made with better quality.

Unfortunately, no one is here for the idea of the slipper being of “better quality” and to be honest, I’m not here for it either. Sorry Jeffrey Campbell, but you’re about 15 years too late.

Ladies, what are your thoughts on Jeffrey Campbell’s slippers?
