Kanye West: “What’s a recession?”

leave a comment »

sneakerFamed 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?

$100?

$200?

$300?

$600?

$800?

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.
