La Dispute - Yann Tiersen



To the fashion naysayers that argue that fashion is stupid. . . well I just pray that they never get a whiff of these babies because I would have absolutely no argument to combat theirs. That's right friends, step right up. For the small and very practical sum of $550 you too can own a pair of "distressed" designer sneakers. By Golden Goose. . . a fable similar to the Emperor's new clothes. In the fable of the Golden Goose, the man kills the golden-egg-laying-goose and finds there's nothing inside the goose. In real life buying sneakers which are already dirtied for $550 might require you to look deep inside your soul and find that maybe there's nothing there as well.

Maybe I could start a business distressing sneakers for rich folk. Because clearly even in this time of recession some tasks are still far too tedious for the wealthy. . .

oy. I say, just get a pair of designer sneakers, and dip them in mud, and voila!

I have 12 dollar shoes from HM that looks similar to those. Add a zipper and run them over with some tires and the would look exactly like that. People are crazy. It's almost insulting that these shoes were even made. These shoes are like Sarah Palin running for VP. Insulting to humanity and women in particular.
