So, as you saw from my title, how much would you pay for shoes? I’m not talking about high fashion, just your day to day shoes for when you go explore the city. You’re probably wondering why I’m asking such a random question but I want to shed some light on something that’s unbelievable in my opinion.
I’ve briefly mentioned how I am interested in a particular shoe from Adidas, but it’s not because of how they look or anything… it’s how much people would spend just to have a pair of them. These are the Adidas x Kanye West Yeezy Boost 350 V2 (Such a long name…), they normally are sold in such limited quantities for about $220, but people are willing to pay so much more for them just because of the collaboration.
Currently when visiting the link to the shoe on Adidas.com, there is a picture of the most recent one with a Zebra pattern, they aren’t the most appealing shoes in my opinion but I managed to purchase a pair and eventually sold it for such a high price through a consignment store named Flight Club. Flight Club sells “hyped up” shoes that are authentic to people online and in the NYC and LA store.
Once I brought in the shoe, I was informed that they would be selling my Zebra looking shoe that I purchased $220 for $2000… To this day (Even though this happened a week ago or so) I can’t believe that people would pay so much for such a thing.
Bottom-line I learned that people would gladly pay so much money for a shoe just because Kanye West’s name is attached to it.
How much would you pay for shoes? Have you ever made such a purchase like this? Let me know!
