Thatís mighty expensive for a $2 pair of flip flops but I bought the Creature ones anyway to go with my Super 7 Creature towel.

Yeah it is! If they were $10 I'd hang 'em with my towel, but . . .

They've gone on sale at various discounts in the last year give or take. Half off at one point, I believe.

So, they've been around for a while, then. I think this is the first I've seen them.

These are really cool...but not for the price.  $30 could go toward a nice vintage collectible.

Don't really get the appeal.  If you stick your feet in them, they might as well be blank inside - no one can see them.

Might look OK next to Mike's Creature Towel.

I'd like the Dracula ones to display, but the price it just too outrageous.  Maybe if they were around $15 or less.

Interesting price point

I lived in Brazil for a few years. At one point I lived in the same city as the Rider factory. In Brazil (at the time) you could buy Rider flip flops for less than $1. I used them as cheap flip flops to use in the shower. I had no idea they sold them in the US. I came back to the US and I saw Rider sandals for sale in a Nordstrom or similar upper scalish department store for an unthinkable price. Absolutely exploded my mind that the dirt cheap flip flops worn by everyone in favelas were designer flip flops in the US costing more than a Brazilian laborers monthly salary.
