A pair of sneakers sold by upscale retailer Neiman Marcus are drawing attention both for their $1,425 price tag and the fact that they look like a dog ate them.
The “Future Destroyed High-Top Sneaker,” designed by Maison Margiela, retails for $1,425 on Neiman Marcus’ website:
The white sneakers have been partially shredded — or, as the product description puts it, they were subjected to “heavy distressing” — to reveal the bright yellow stuffing.
The upscale shopper looking to downscale their look might seek to pair the pre-destroyed sneakers with (remember these?)… a pair of $425 Nordstrom jeans that come pre-caked with mud.
The more clean-concious consumer might want to forgo the dirty jeans in favor of (remember these, too?)… “Clear Knee Mom Jeans,” which retail for the comparatively low price of $95.
