As a self-sustaining 21-year-old with an entry level salary, I’m an instant ramen devotee—for eating, that is. But as footwear? Maybe not.

Anything that the internet takes interest in is bound to birth a meme, and so the shoe has been compared to pantry items—instant noodles and NSYNC-era Justin Timberlake’s hair, of course.

If anything, it makes us crave a packet of chilimansi pancit canton for merienda.
