    Wow. Footlocker must pay really well for Mr. Kastings to be able to take a week off to buy $1000 shoes. :cuckoo:

    This shit makes me nuts.

    Yes ravi I do. $1000 can pay tuition, textbooks, or - gasp - even be put in a savings account if ever he's let go for taking too much vacation time to go shopping.

    I don't care if he's Trump's kid. That is fucking ridiculous.

    Bearing in mind that this thread has been submitted in order to surrepticiously draw fire against blacks - though please don't congratulate me for stating the obvious, as I too disaprove of such wanton excess - it's important to remember the other side of the coin.

    When the much lauded Audi R8 was released in Europe, it came with a hefty price tag. But regardless, everyone who could afford one wanted one. But due to such enormous demand, Audi announced that there would be a two year waiting list, and if you wanted to rise to the top of the waiting list, you'd have to pay several thousand euros for the privilege. I'm a huge proponent of Audi (I drive an R6), but even I couldn't get my head around paying a significant sum of money to be put on a two year waiting list for a car that will have been surpassed by future models in five years. It didn't make sense, and these were all white people who were queuing-up to be fleeced. But, then again, shoving £300 into the garter of an indifferent stripper with absolutely no possibility of getting your dick wet as a result seems equally pointless as well.

    However, if you've legally earnt it, who am I to tell you what to spend your money on?

    Chanel always knows better than anyone else what is good for them and how they should spend their money. Don't you know that by now?

    My last pair of sneakers cost me about $24. But if someone wants to spend $1000 on a pair of foam rubber shoes that look like floatation devices, that's their choice.

    thats not what she said, its a matter of priority.

    This generation has a problem with 'delayed gratification'. If my own daughter bought a 1k pair of sneakers then asked me for book money even 6 months later, I would tell her to read her shoes.
