Celebrity entrepreneur Neelofa recently launched a brand new slip-on sandals in collaboration with local footwear brand Fipper earlier this week, aptly referred to as “Fipper x TheNoor by Neelofa”.
Among the notable features that were highlighted for the latest product include its lightweight material, along with a sole suction cup design that would gently protect the wearer’s foot. Interestingly enough, the label even claimed that the sandals are Muslim-friendly!
As expected, the announcement was met with numerous amusing reactions left by local netizens on Facebook. In this case, many have raised several questions about the footwear’s so-called “Muslim-friendly” specification. Apart from that, some even argued that the sandals look pretty much the same as other footwear in the market.
One FB user prompted, “What’s the benefit of wearing this slippers? So, is my Bata sandals not Muslim-friendly enough?”, while other commented, “What is it that is so friendly about this sandals? During my time in school, I used my Tat Sing-branded slippers all the time, especially when going to my hostel’s prayer room.”

Despite the latest drama, there were also a lot of the starlet’s fans who express interest in buying their own pair. For those wondering, the sandals are priced at RM79.90 per pair.
