You Can Now Buy ‘Destroyed’ Sneakers for $1,425
Looking poor has never cost so much money.
Designer Maison Margiela has made this pair of highly distressed sneakers that cost a ridiculous $1,425. What makes that price tag so absurd? Well, aside from the fact that it costs $1,425 for a pair of sneakers, the kicks look like they've been shredded before a pack of wild dogs chowed down on them.
The shoe is officially called the Future Destroyed High-Top Sneaker, and according to the product description on Nieman Marcus' website:
Maison Margiela deconstructs their "Future" high-top sneaker with heavy distressing.
Leather and textile upper.
Lace-up front with side lace guards.
Logo patch at tongue.
Cushioned heel counter.
Made in Italy.
In other words, it's like every piece of footwear, except it's got a price tag that will make you run in your worn out shoes for Payless. They're not the only sneakers that have people up in arms.
