If you are a fan of hip-hop at all, you probably recently heard Future’s new project, Dirty Sprite 2.  On his song “Thought It Was a Drought,” he raps: I Just F*cked Your B*tch in Gucci Flip Flops.  With his popularity at an all-time high, it was no doubt that Gucci Flip Flops would become the hottest trend to end the summer.  Check out the song for yourself:

This pair of Gucci flip flops are called the Sabot Sandal, and they’re made from black rubber.  The upper features an iconic red & green striped colorway, and the rest of the sandal is black with an embossed “Gucci” logo on the back.  They’re available here for $141 USD.
