Gucci has released a new range of sneakers that are purposefully dirty on purchase and you're going to need to break the bank if you want a pair.
There are people in this world, such as athletes, movie stars, and Bill Gates, who earn and have so much money that is difficult for us to even comprehend it. Millions, if not billions of dollars. The kind of cash where if you were to drop a $50 bill, it wouldn't be worth your time to bend down and pick it up. We often ask ourselves what on Earth those people spend all of that money on.
Since the Gateses of the world have more money than they could ever spend, a lot of it goes to charity. However, a lot of it must go on extravagant purchases too. Items that we look at and roll our eyes or wonder who would even consider buying them. If you would like an example of what we are talking about, look no further than Gucci's new line of Screener sneakers.
Look pretty dirty, don't they? Wondering why we couldn't find a better pic aren't you? Well, the reason that's the photo we've opted for is because that is the finished article. The shoes are intentionally dirty and have been "treated for a vintage, distressed effect," reports the New York Post. Now for the all-important question, how much do these puppies cost?
The pair pictured above will set you back a staggering $870. If you want the high top version, add an extra 60 bucks on top of that. But wait, there's more. The range also includes a pair of low tops with removable embellished cherries attached to the front. Personally, we think that makes the filthy footwear look even worse. However, if you like them, then they'll set you back a whopping $1250.
If you are one of those people who does wonder what extravagantly rich people spend their money on, there you have it. On the other hand, you might like the look of the sneakers above and pick up a pair for yourself. Each to their own we guess. However, if you're looking for a slightly cheaper way to get your hands on them, why not just buy a $700 pair of Gucci sneakers and dirty them up yourself? Just a thought.
