They say beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Since fashion is subjective, we don't expect everyone to understand every trend. But when companies create bizarre products that are listed for ridiculous prices, we can't help but be shocked.
Gucci's Cruise '19 collection features a pair of 'vintage distressed sneakers' that have us shook. The shoes look pre-dirty and worn and we're just not sure who would actually want to own a pair. Take a look at these babies.
The product detail on the website lists that the shoes are inspired by vintage sportswear patterns from the 70s and is treated for an 'all-over distressed effect'. We don't know about distress but these just look plain dirty and worn out. They look a little too vintage, if you ask us.
If you're already frowning over the bizarre product, wait till we mention the price of these kicks. The Screener GG Sneaker is retailed at 870 USD which converts to Rs 61,938. That's pretty damn expensive for a pair of old worn-out looking shoes.
As if the Gucci 'racist' sweater controversy hadn't stirred enough trouble for the brand, this shoe is getting trolled by the internet too. Take a look at what some Twitter users had to say about this product.

After the Croc Bag, we weren't ready for another bizarre shoe just yet. On the brighter side, you wouldn't have to wash these sneakers.
