Kanye West: “What’s a recession?”
Famed rapper Kanye West teamed up with design powerhouse Louis Vuitton to create a line of sneakers to be released in June. The rapper came out with 7 different designs. That’s all fine and dandy, but can you guess what the cheapest pair starts at?
Try EIGHT HUNDRED AND FORTY FREAKIN’ DOLLARS!
The cheapest kicks will cost some moron $840 while the most expensive will set you back $1,140. Keep in mind these are “ordinary” sneakers and not some fancy-pants pair of shoes featuring the skin of some rare animal.
I have to say this leaves me scratching my head. Luxury designers are struggling to make sales and their answer is to release a potentially “hot” product at such unaffordable prices for the average person.
Also, what does someone do if they step in a muddy puddle? I’d probably kill myself.
P.S. The sneakers pictured in this post run $990. Image comes courtesy of NiceKicks.com.
