This makes me feel so sad.  I don't know what's worse, that there are people who might actually buy a pair of these, or that there's a company willing to exploit that.

The shoes were already sold out, so people DID buy them.  I don't blame the company though, as there are people who spend thousands (and after a quick search, millions! Yikes!) on purses and other clothing items, so if they can make a buck on people willing to buy things like those shoes why not.

I would however love to give some serious face punches to the fools who buy these types of things.

People have been doing the same with guitars forever.  They pay an up charge for a company to make it look like you didn't take good care of your instrument for a long period of time.  I will never understand this.

I don't really like the look of that shoe.

How much would it cost to get someone to put designer duct tape on my $3,400 Yeezy's?

A new yardstick for superficial. Can't even bother to wear out stuff yourself. Got to buy it pre-worn-out. ;)
