Yes, I paid $300 for rubber pool slides. It was a calculated decision. I weighed the options. I wore them on carpet for a few days before fully committing. After having them (and breaking them in) for a couple of months, I can safely say I'm completely obsessed with them and confident in my decision to keep them. I don't spend tons of money on clothes, but shoes and bags are my downfall. Throw in my favorite food (strawberries) and I'm sold. I had seen the floral version on numerous influencers, but I had never seen the strawberry version. They are a small (and very frivolous) thing that is bringing me joy in this uncertain time we are in.
