Re: Clown World: Gucci Is Selling $870 Sneakers That Purposely Look Filthy
I just spent 150 bucks on some Brooks Ghost 13 running shoes.

Most comfortable running shoes I've ever had, I can't WAIT till their broken in.

I also have 360 dollar Red Wing Boots that I've worn to work everyday for the past 5 years. Ive even paid dearly to have them re-soled.

I have no problems shelling out good money for a shoe.

Alot of back and hip problems stem from not having the right shoes.

Also my wife has a couple pairs of Gucci shoes and a wallet snd bag.

While I don't understand why people are so desperate to own 500-600 dollar shoes with no purpose, I will say the Gucci stuff my wife has, has lasted and is very well made.

She has one pair of Gucci shoes that are almost 8 years old and still look new. She wears them alot.

But, 870 for this.....hurrrrr

Seriously, with a couple of exceptions, Gucci shoes are about the ugliest shoes on the market. These are at the bottom of the barrel. They look like something Rodney Dangerfield's character would have worn in Caddie Shack - only dirty.
 Quoting: GA Girl



Agreed. Its along the same lines as some 'artist' smearing some whaleshit and bat guano on a canvas then signs it and its worth millions (a la Hunter Biden)

Same concept for most of the stuff Gucci, Versace, Prada, etc sell.

I tease my wife alot for some of the stuff she wants, but shes a good woman and has always loyally had my back right or wrong. She's a rarity these days so if she wants some ugly ass designer shoes or purses and we have it financially, so be it.

I was writing you while you were responding to me.

Don't know why I find this kind of funny but I do.

Cheers pretty lady, hope you're doing good.


PS thanks for the tip on looking for sales.

If you don't 'get' that high end designer goods are more about art than wear, you probably will never buy anything like them anyway.

Those have the iconic Gucci look for sure.

I love Gucci. I would not buy these but I can understand the vision of the icon sullied and street.

It conjures HORDES of hoodrats rushing in to smash and grab high end Sneakers. It says sullied and street, wear them til they fall apart because these are Gucci's damnit, and EVERYONE wants it even if it's not pristine and perfect.

2nd hand Gucci's go skyhigh and they know it.
This wearable art is like a testament to the last few years.

They can't beat the Balenciaga Crocs

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 20884901


Crocs™ Madame 80mm Mule in black rubber is from the look 21 of the Balenciaga’s Spring 22, Clones Collection. Balenciaga Crocs 2.0, the second collaboration between the two brands, sees the classic clog made into a Mule.

At $625 those will make anyone look like a jackass.

Today a good pair of Italian made shoes at 3-500 is a modest price. The typical price point of these higher end brands, which are no better than the middle brand stuff and made in the same factories in China and Taiwan, or sometimes in Italy by Chinese workers, typically 1599. or in that range or higher for pair of Lubitons and some other higher end brands. Most are not worth it and, they cut higher end shoes far to narrow. Real people are a width C, not an A or B. ALL high end shoes are cut extremely narrow. It's modern foot binding. Only one brand cuts a C width and it's by order only.

No wonder they hate the peasants. They are jealous and are willing to pay lots of money to suggest they experience real life.

Wonder how much they would pay me to collect fresh eggs in the morning and wash the poop off them.

The designer brand is selling $870 men’s and women’s shoes that have been “treated for an all-over distressed effect,” that gives them the look of worn-in sneakers.

An $870 sneaker isn't so bad. You do get a much higher quality product at that price range. The distressed look has been popular the past few years in dress shoes. It is dumb on a white sneaker.

To me it simply shows how fake, shallow and useless those who thrive on designer labels are ...
They are a joke even to the maker, not enough depth to be able to live life, they need to copy it and think they are special.

We all have our areas where we like to splurge. Do you drive the cheapest car on the market? Live in the cheapest house you could find? I thought not. There will always be a little give and take given your finances and lifestyle. With the Gucci shoes, though, it's expense for ugly and dirty/worn-out looking shoes, and that puts it into the category of, "Why would you do that?"

I actually use an MK (Michael Kors) tote/purse. It is a soft plastic with MK all over the front. The first one I got about 15 years ago only because those are my initials and I thought it would be cool carrying around a purse with my initials on it. I think it cost about $200 and I used it daily. You wouldn't believe the work files, lunch, computers that thing carried around for years. I mean, 10 lbs worth of stuff daily! I easily would have gone through 3-4 cheaper purses in that time and actually would have spent much more. Seriously, I had never had a purse so durable. Even though people would give me with nice purses, they would sit in my closet. But alas, the thing finally started to look ratty, so I purhased another just like it. It's actually been the best value per use of any purse I've ever had. So expensive isn't always costly and cheap isn't always the better value.
