Yes, that is ridiculous. Yes, I probably spend $600 on footwear each year but I'm buying heavy industrial work boots that cost around $250 for a pair. But still, that is extreme. The most I've ever spend on boots was $320 and they were worth it, its the only pair of work boots I have that have lasted me 4 years. At that price, those shoes better last you a lifetime and you'd have to be wearing them all the time. But it's your money. I could think of a lot of better things to spend that money on, but do what you want.
I'll never do that. I can think of much better things to buy with that amount of money. You can get decent shoes for waaay lower. Don't be fooled because something may be a "better" or more famous brand. High end does not always equal the best.
If you have more than enough money, I don't find it to be ridiculous. However if you can't afford it and it takes away from more important things like rent and bills, then yes it's ridiculous. But if you are more than able to splurge on a pair of shoes, why the hell not?
If you're financially independent and have the money for it, why not?
I know people are gonna hate and act like they're too deep, wise and smart for that, but it's cause they don't have the $$$ to throw away on luxury items. There's no way my mom would buy me shoes that cost that much but I think the most she'd spend is $1000 for Louboutins for me...
I'd rather go on a vacation, a cruise, or something of the sort...$1700 for shoes is a bit over the edge, probably more than even the most extravagant girl is willing to spend on shoes (unless she's buying 20 pairs)...You'd be surprised.
Only stupid people would spend THAT much money to buy something that only took about 10 cents to make. & very wealthy people of course, because to them 1700 is equivalent to 10 cents, since money is frequently flowing without much effort.
$1700 for a pair of sport shoes ? You know that it probably didn't cost Nike more than 20 bucks to make them, right ?
You could have two pairs of incredibly good quality custom tailored leather shoes for that price, and you want to buy stuff that would make you appear like a blingy rapper wanna be from a project instead ?
How dumb can you be? Save your f***ing money. I'd rather save and go on a vacation. I'd rather donate $1600 of it and play one round of golf. You've been saving up for a while... well, that implies you don't have that amount yet or if you do buy them, you'll essentially have $0 left. Why the f*** would you do that for something you walk in? Nobody cares. Nobody.
