Normally, needing to hold your shoes together with duct tape is a sign it’s time to toss them out. At Barneys New York, it means it’s time to pay up. The luxury department store is selling “distressed” sneakers for hundreds of dollars and people are not happy about it.
The shoes, which come with scuff marks, run from $530 to $655 and some Twitter uses are calling it “poverty appropriation,” pointing out that could buy a pair that look exactly the same for $5.35 at the thrift store.
