The latest in ridiculous fashion: $1,950 Maison Margiela 'destroyed' high top sneakers

·Managing Editor

Another day, another piece of clothing that makes you weep for humanity.

Just last week, Nordstrom was absolutely roasted for selling a pair of PRPS “Barracuda” jeans for $425 USD (nearly $600 CAD) that are made to look like you spent the day gettin’ dirty.

And now, Maison Margiela is stirring controversy with their $1,425 USD (a whopping $1,950 CAD) “Future Destroyed High Top Sneaker.”

You might remember the non-slashed Future shoes, which Kanye West frequently wore on his Yeezus tour — the “destroyed” version features slashes with bright yellow stuffing poking through — and they’re stapled together for good measure.

According to Footwear News: “It’s a far more edgy answer to Golden Goose’s ‘Distressed Superstar Sneakers’ that feature scuff marks, ripped laces and duct-tape reinforcements.”

If you forget about Golden Goose, let me refresh your memories. Last year, the Internet was very annoyed when bloggers and celebrities started stepping out in those $600+ “distressed” Golden Goose shoes? My personal favourite pair even has some duct-tape detailing. Werk!
