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
