Would you pay $400 for a lipstick? No way! How about $400 for high heels? Well, maybe. Luxury footwear brand Alberto Guardiani, founded in 1940 by brothers Luigi and Dino Guardiani, initially manufactured men’s shoes under the Nuova Centauro brand  (which still exists).

Among their wildly squee-worthy line of slippers and slides designed to cover the feet or your equally adorable child, you can now find these plush Flamingo Slippers. So plush, so Pink.
