    Understandable. As a fashion trendsetter, I carry a heavy burden. ;)

    Point of clarification: those are McGregor’s, which are very nice LWB’s.

    But these are MacGregor’s:

    We have discussed the pros and cons of AEs sneaker line in terms of cost and quality. $250? Not for me, but there is clearly a market. Nordstrom's has sold of of this Golden Goose Super Star sneaker at $530, tape included.

    Come on now, you are pulling our collective leg. That’s a photoshop. That can’t be real. I simply can’t believe that’s real.

    If it is real, what the hell is going on?! Who is operating with that level of unironic faux-authenticity. How the shit is that an actual product?! I’m not even kidding. Please tell me that’s a photoshop.

    I had some snarky comment, but I can’t remember it anymore because of the sold-out 530 dollar taped sneakers @smfdoc posted about.

    I can’t believe such a thing exists.

    Sorry, its real. I included a link in the original post. Click on the name of the sneaker in bold and it will take you right to the page. The price is not posted, but the story, which I believe to be accurate, was that they were $530.

    Here is the same shoe being sold on another site for the $530.

    See how the addition of tape reinforces the idea the that wearer “are in pursuit of their dreams, reinforcing American ideals,”??? Oh yes, I went FULL MALCOLM right there.
