How Much Did Your Designer Sneakers Cost?!

I may be a bit of a compartmentalizer, but I was a little weirded out when I started seeing sneakers prancing down the runways of New York Fashion Week and the pages of my Vogue magazine.

You’d assume I’d be ecstatic, being that I’m a self-proclaimed tomboy and will rock some Chucks with a dress way more readily than a pair of heels, but these shoes, of course, come with an pricey caveat. You can’t just rock any sneakers with your designer clothes; you have to rock a pair of thousand-dollar sneakers. And I thought paying more than $150 for a great pair of running shoes was indulgent!

I’m floored by this. Maybe I’m just a simple gal and can’t understand the finer points of rocking a label on my sole. I just know I’m perfectly okay with my functional, affordable kicks that get me from point A to point B with comfort and ease and support.

What about you? Have you seen the Prada and Chanel shoes I’m referring to? What’s the most you’d pay for some kicks and why? Frugal minds want to know! —Tish

  1. Ridiculous when people pay a lot of money for technical running shoes, but don’t run. The cushioning, stability features etc are wasted on them and I know as I’m a runner who makes do with cheap trainers!
    Some people don’t even have one pair of shoes, which is why I’m taking second hand shoes to the Gambia with me next week, on a charity mission. Please find out more on my blog, Someone Else’s Shoes,

  2. Most people just paying for a label and fancy look. Even though not always more expensive means better.
    Most important is to feel comfortable.

    I’m generally in the same boat as you. I am not opposed to splurging a bit when it comes to my workout/running shoes because I double them up for everyday use as well. But, it’s ridiculous what some people pay for stickers on their shoes that people can’t even see most of the time…

  4. Totally agree with you Tish:) I think the most important thing is to buy shoes that make you happy. I doubt I would ever spend a thousand dollars on shoes . The brands seem to be quite an obsession, to really a good thing considering the heavy price tag
