We’re frankly a little reluctant to reveal this secret. Aussie brand Rubi Shoes (Cotton On’s sister brand for accessories) is one of our fave places for stylish, dirt-cheap flip flops, slides and jelly sandals starting from $10. The range is mostly kept classic, with designs ranging from leopard printed flip flops, faux fur slides and those with bows similar to the Fenty x Puma slides which are a great pair of alternatives if the latter is out of your budget. Pro tip: Sales are the best time to stock up as that’s when prices can drop to as low as $5.
Rubi Shoes, available at various locations, including Orchard Turn and Bugis Junction.
