Re: Sneaker Prices Out of Control
op is spot on. its celebrity salesmanship and people eat it up so what are you gonna do? i like the analogy to a rare painting since that was precisely nike's goal when they started this retro marketing stuff. if i didn't feel it was so perverted, i might just consider those campaigns admirable.
last two pairs of sneakers i got cost me $1/each. buy one get the second, from our selection of shit, for a buck. i followed a friend in haha. but they continue to serve me well, one pair of underarmor runners, one pair of no name basketball shoes.
