Out with the new, in with the old?
Neiman Marcus is selling $1,425 “Future Destroyed High-Top Sneakers” from luxury designer Maison Margiela on its website, and it the shoes completely live up to their name.
The men’s sneakers are so mangled and dirty, they look like they previously moonlighted as a chew toy for dogs.
The Italian-made sneaker is now available at the high-end department store, making it the latest item in an apparent trend of "distressed" fashion across retail brands. The white and yellow, expensive high-top sneakers have "heavy distressing" with ripped leather, holes and scratches around the exterior of the shoe.
Created by high-fashion designer Maison Margiela, known for avant-garde and deconstructed designs, the shoes are available in U.S. men's sizes 10, 11 and 12. The high-end department store is also selling a variety of sneakers from Maison Margiela that appear to have paint splatters on them.
For those who are interested in making a fashion statement, Neiman Marcus is offering free shipping and free returns.
News spread about the Neiman Marcus shoes just a few weeks after Nordstrom started selling jeans that appeared to have mud on them.
