Future Nike's that don't lace themselves up and a hover board that doesn't hover.In all seriousness it's an interesting argument; people buy these shoes as a wearable piece of art in a sense (as old mate in the vidya points out). But on the other hand they're paying crazy amounts of money for the thing that goes between you and all the filth of the world. Where you draw the line between reasonable and unreasonable is completely up to you but for me, my $100 pair of Etnies are comfy to ride in, look stylish enough to get me into whatever beer soaked local I'm headed for and if they last a year I'll be stoked.
Call me out if you think I'm wrong and sneaker style is the future or something but in the meantime enjoy the coming weekend my dudes!
