Suddenly, flip-flops, those slabs of rubber with V-shaped slivers between the toes, are ubiquitous in what were once dressed-up settings. Some say that casual dress gone too far, but the once-humble summer footwear has gone upscale. Designers are selling eye-catching flip-flops for hundreds of dollars. Though it’s not that time of the year when you shop for flip-flops, but this Dolce & Gabbana pair of summer 2007 flip-flops just couldn’t be missed. Gear up for the summer of ’07 with these D&G casual footwear. They are absolutely light in weight and made of cushy, stacked foam in layers of black, white and red or blue, depending on the overall color scheme of the sandal. “D&G Beachwear Fun Equipment for Summer 2007” is printed on the sole, near the heel, of each sandal. Since they are designer flip-flops, a limited edition tag makes it more exclusive.
