WINDOWSHOP IN KOREA // These Cereal and Candy Are Actually Shoes!

I love windowshopping in Korea! 


On the first week I came here for teaching English, I decided to check out Starfield Hanam Mall which is located near Paldang station. You have to take a taxi or bus though (BUS #50 Stop at Starfield) because this ain`t walkable from the station at all.

While browsing around, my foodie senses started tingling as I slightly walked near this store called Wonderplace. It seems to be a store selling street and sporty type of clothing but what caught my eye were these shoes with foodie packaging!

These slippers and shoes are made to mimic snickers and kit kat candies! Some of my fave candies to be honest... 
I saw slippers and shoes that have nostalgic packaging meant to mimic classic candies and cereals! HOW FREAKIN` COOOOL.

Here is the store front. I usually wouldn't go to that type of store since it looks too street and sporty for me ...LOL but the food. THE FOODIE STUFF! I seriously wanted to buy it all but one pair was .... 69,000 Korean won. THAT IS BASICALLY $69. UNBELIEVABLY EXPENSIVE. So.... I will just enjoy with my eyes. 

Do you know what this is supposed to remind you have? Nverquit...NESQUIK! I used to drink Nesquik when I was little. Chocolate milk was yummmm.

Just look at them cool slippers! I kind of want.... but my bank account T___T. *cries* (debating if I should use my English Teacher pay for this....hmmm but I don't even wear slippers...ever...)

I even love the way they do the nutrition facts. LOL to the teeeeeeee

Upon further research through the cyber world, I discovered that these shoes are from a brand called SWITFISH

Apparently, it is a brand that is based in Seoul and Los Angeles. And actually a very very new brand too. SWITFISH just launched in 2018 in Vegas and specializes in making fun and witty footwear in collaborations with artists and more! 

Check out their website and more shoes here:

And... they have an INSTAGRAM:

Y'all know I love Oreo's, so this Oreo inspired slipper makes me wanna throw all my money away. THAT PACKAGING THOUGHHHH.

You can find Wonderplace, the store, in many malls and locations in Korea! I've seen it around in Myeongdong and Lotte Department store before! 

If someone gives out Halloween candy this year, please let the candy be this.... 

On the reals though I honestly think the shoes look kinda ugly. Like... the bottom is so poofy and bulky looking. Are they even comfy!? And the slippers basically looks like someone slapped on a knock-off candy wrapper on it. But... the packaging... is where it's at~~. Now that I think about it... I might like the packaging more than the actual footwear itself.


What do you think of this brand? And the delicious packaging?? Would you fork over $50 - $70 for one of these kicks?
Or nawwwwwwwwwww ?!
