Nordstrom is selling bandaged scuffed sneakers for $530, and they go well with ugly $400 ripped jeans. As a very old guy who always tries to look spiffy, even when when my wallet was empty, I can’t understand this. Why did this idiotic trend in expensive trashy clothing and shoes ever get started?
We can only guess it’s based on filthy rich people feeling guilty about all their dirty money. Shopping in swanky stores, eating in posh restaurants and traveling by limo are too often interrupted when they see ragged homeless people on the streets. Of course, their guilt doesn’t induce them to help those in need. The wealthy snobs believe their consciences can be eased by idiotically dressing to look like tramps.
