Generally speaking, all you look for in a pool float is something cheap and cheerful that will let you float around on hot summer days comfortably and maybe has a cute design. It’s not a beach/pool accessory that should ever break the bank or cost an arm and a leg — after all, it’s a piece of vinyl, so how expensive can it be? Well, if you ask Versace, about $200!
- Yes, they’re really selling a $200 pool float. There’s nothing special about it. It’s simply a vinyl ring with Versace’s classic design printed on it. It’s not made with special materials and doesn’t do anything different than normal pool floats. It just costs about $180 more.
- You still have to blow it up yourself. You would think that for $200, the thing would come pre-inflated so that you literally only have to take it out of the package and be on your way. Not the case! You still have to blow this thing up with the air from your lungs. Rip-off!
- I guess it was “made in Italy,” which is cool? I’m trying to think of literally anything that would make paying $200 for a pool float even remotely appropriate. I’m coming up way short, but if I’m really making giant leaps here, I guess you could say it’s cool that Versace actually made this in Italy, so it’s vaguely exotic? I don’t know, I’m struggling here!
- You could literally buy at least 10 other pool floats. Just forget this one – buy loads of other pool floats in different designs and you can have your pick of summer fun!
