Nordstrom sold out $530 dirty-looking sneakers

Are you an idiot with way too much money?

Nordstrom is the store for you!

The company is selling a pair of Superstar Taped Sneakers for $530!

$530 for a pair of new sneakers contrived to look dirty, worn, and patched-up.

Carly Mallenbaum reports for USA Today, Sept. 20, 2018 (updated Sept. 24, 2018):

In case you wondered who would be crazy enough to pay $530 for a pair of dirty, pre-worn, taped-up sneakers, the answer is apparently plenty of people.

 A check of the Nordstrom website Mondy morning revealed that the department store has sold out its current stock.

The Superstar Taped Sneaker from Italian brand Golden Goose sneakers, which are only available in whole sizes, boasted a “crumply, hold-it-all-together tape details a distressed leather sneaker in a retro low profile with a signature sidewall star and a grungy rubber cupsole.”

If you missed your chance, Golden Goose also offers plenty of other worn-looking sneakers for upwards of $500….

The company [also] recently sold a pair of PRPS men’s pants, caked with fake dirt, for $425; and a pair of Topshop “mom jeans” with see-through knees for $95.

What a great place 2018 America is.

Not only do we have fake news from the MSM, we now have fake poor-people’s sneakers and pants!

OMG…the jeans with fake dirt and cut out knees are also both sold out.

If my stylist picked out that crap for me, they’d be fired!

Don’t worry, you and I are both safe. As I said decades ago when Grunge came in as the newest fad, “Only the wealthy can afford to dress this poorly.”

I think this is ridiculous, but things are worth whatever someone’s willing to pay for them, or so says my father anyway. (He’s right, I think.)

How ’bout a pair of “Chucks” with a Brillo pad toe piece and a portrait of Chairman Mao?

And just think they pay people to sit in a back room somewhere and come up with this crap. They are probably thinking, hey, let’s see if the public will buy this one.

You can get near identical things at Goodwill a lot cheaper.

This kind of absurd extravagance is typical of cultures when they have hit a peak and now exhibit signs of decay.

Joseph … You hit that right on the button. This is definitely indicative of a society that has begun its decline. It is pitiful that we have so many people whose brains just do not function.

Hello Auntie, it’s quite wonderful to see you up and about, contributing your sage insights!

And if you want to see my continuing support of your position, please take a look at the absurd antics of protesters now decrying anything and everything about President Trump. You and other long-time readers-contributors will recall I wrote before he was elected, that President Trump would become our latter-day Teddy Roosevelt, loved by half the electorate and reviled by the other.

And here we are!

For $80 you can get a pair of briefs that already has skidmarks.

But are they trademarked? We want to be sure that we’re getting the genuine gear.
