London - A diabolical hybrid of the rubbery ‘Croc’-style clog has been launched by Office, for £39.99 (about R500).

At their worst, the shoes resemble orthopedic foot supports, at best, an approximation of a moccasin - complete with breathing holes, jaunty clashing laces and an insole impregnated with a summery “citrus scent”.

They come in a rainbow of colours - from bright turquoise, hot pink and fire engine red to beige and white, and can be cleaned in a washing machine.

Office say the mock loafers are suitable to take you from a “hot beach to a cool bar”. We say, don’t count on being let in. - Daily Mail
