Looking Poor is “Cool”, Says the Left: Neiman Marcus’ New Shooz

Just weeks ago, Nordstrom featured jeans caked in fake dirt for a pittance of $425. They clearly are a mere bag of shells when compared to Needless Markup’s—errr—Neiman Marcus’ hottest shoe:

The shoe (if you call it that) is designed by Maison Margiela retails for, get this: $1,425. Maison Margiela has an equally as hideous clothing line. The description of the designer on Neiman’s website follows:

Maison Margiela

Founded in 1988 by designer Martin Margiela, the French fashion label Maison Margiela’s designs can be best described as enigmatic and iconoclastic. Since its inception, the brand has challenged the traditional norms with its unconventional design techniques. Neiman Marcus offers a great selection of Maison Margiela shoes and and its men’s collection.

Unconventional? Iconoclastic? These shoes are literally held together by staples! Yes, I said staples! Remember when Nordstrom refused to carry Ivanka Trump’s line because “sales were poor”? Well, I went ahead and for grins, searched for “Ivanka Trump” on Neiman Marcus’ page and…nope, Ivanka is nowhere to be found. But, they sell ripped shoes held together by staples because they are “iconoclastic” and I am sure they will sell these like hotcakes. They will be flying off the shelves!

So, let me get this straight. Cornrows are appropriation. Wearing hoop earrings is appropriation. Dressing in a country’s traditional dress if you are not from that country is appropriation. Eating certain foods is appropriation. We all have to recognize our “privilege” when we do all of the above and be very careful not to do it. But dropping close to two thousand dollars on muddy jeans and ripped-up shoes is not appropriation of the poor? It’s ghetto-fabulous! Yet I’m supposed to feel guilty for living in a comfortable home and perhaps dropping $150 on a pair of Ivanka Trump boots (because I’m supporting the “privileged” child of the “demonic” president) while some idiot runs up to Neiman Marcus and drops close to $1500 on a pair of shoes held together by staples! I’m sorry, if you buy any of these shoes from this line, you might be an idiot. Just saying.

Voilà, Le Couture de Paris at your fingertips at Neiman’s. After the events in France this past weekend, Maison Margiela may just be on to something.

    FIFY

    Well, no, I think they just look like they’re held together with staples. When I looked at the one picture, it seemed pretty obvious there is something solid underneath the ripped-up bits.

    I’m sorry, if you buy any of these shoes from this line, you might be an idiot.

    You definitely have more money than brains. *smdh*
