    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.

    If you’re near a distribution center you can ask the sender to check off a box that will hold it there for your pickup. I’ve done that with really expensive stuff that I knew I would not be home to sign or receive.

    I would have called the NRA AND The Brady Campaign on them. You're right, you'll get more action from people (on both sides) with something to gain than the gum'ment guys just doing their job. When 60 Minutes or John Stossel show up at Fed-Ex with cameras they'll all scurry to cover their asses.

    And I thought I had a shoe that was out of line on price. Looking at what is sold in department stores, makes me think that I am too critical of AE. But then again, my older second’s are much nicer than my recent firsts.
