Who in the world would pay three thousand dollars for a pair of shoes? A pair shoes that doesn't even look comfortable!

Isn't that girl on Sex and the City obsessed with shoes like that?

yes, but I was figuring on them being closer to $1000 per pair (which is still ridiculously disgusting), not THREE THOUSAND.

For people who have run out of reasonable things to want? Heaven forbid the rich should spend all that lovely money on tzedekah or anything.

It's just that they're UGLY too!

Obviously, it's intended for those people who have more money than sense.

And I've seen cuter shoes at Payless.

Now, I have a pair of marvelous boots. They were custom-made for me. Handcrafted. By a professional bootmaker. With designs to my specifications. Everyone who sees them goes, "Holy cow! What amazing boots!" And they are!

And they cost about a tenth of those off-the-rack numbers there.

I'm just not seeing good value for money here...

I'm really digging the Commedy of Errors boots!

Yeah. So um, I'm not alone in thinking three thousand dollars for ugly shoes is unseemly?

*faints*

I suppose someone who would wear those would put their toddler in the suede size 3T coat I saw yesterday.

Not only do they look uncomfortable, they're UGLY!

a 3T suede coat? Real suede? Not just sueded material? REALLY?

Anyone who does deserves to have their feet bitten off by another alligator. Then they can buy a $65million wheelchair made out of dinosaur fossils.

Ridiculous.

Well, it's one way to lose these walking blues.

My mother would spend 3K on a pair of shoes. Of course it would be from the stash she stole from me. But I am not bitter.
