Wondering why are a pair of tattered 'Superstar Tape Sneaker' doing rounds on internet?
Recently, shoe brands are out doing each other with their bizarre trends but this time shoe trend setters went a little too far , triggering an outrage on social media and came under fire for glorifying poverty.
Golden Goose, an Italian Shoe Brand, manufactured the Superstar Tape Sneaker which are worn out, dusty and taped-up.
The brand chose to display these shoes on an American retail chain Nordstrom and are being sold for $530 (Rs. 38,000)!
The "crumbly" shoes description read, "Crumply, hold-it-all-together tape details a distressed leather sneaker in a retro low profile with a signature sidewall star and a grungy rubber cupsole.
The outrage received by the brand got intense over night with twitterati and comedians criticizing the design calling it distasteful and stupid.
