Gucci sells $870 sneakers that are sold intentionally dirty

The rich are now buying fake experiences fraudulently displayed on their “active wear.”


According to the website’s description, the shoe design was inspired by “vintage sportswear” and “classic trainers from the ’70s.”

“The Screener sneakers — named for the defensive sports move — feature the Web stripe on the side and vintage Gucci logo, treated for an allover distressed effect,” the website reads.

And even though the shoes already look worn and dirty, Gucci provides very specific cleaning instructions in case actual dirt ever got on the high-priced pair.

“Clean when the shoe is dry, using only neutral or same-color products to avoid staining,” the instructions read. “Should the material become wet, dry it with a soft, dry cloth.”

  1. Hell, I probably have $5,000.00 worth sneakers in my closet. They even have grass stains on them because that’s what I use for yard work. If I had dogs I could really get some big bucks for them.

  2. You used to be able to get the sneakers for half price if you enrolled your kids through a certain admissions program. Then the scandal broke, so now you gotta pay full price for them.

  3. Gucci is just filling a demand. We may not understand it, but if that’s what enough people want for it to be profitable then I am fine with Gucci selling them.
    What I’m not fine with is people wanting them. But I can just ignore them.

  4. Next you’ll find these rich libs buying Gucci’s “Dirt”, the new bought and paid for experience. You buy a jar of it (say $199oz), take some out and put it under the fingernails, then the lib can claim they know what its like to be an average guy who gets his hands dirty doing menial jobs.

  5. Mugatu’s Derelicte campaign realized.

    Like “relic” guitars, they’re selling authenticity to people who have to buy it.

  6. Seen the clowns on TV with the big, ugly, brightly colored eye-glasses on their mugs?

    I guess you can sell these monkey-see, monkey-do morons anything if you market it properly – just call it “style” and it doesn’t matter how ugly, how stupid, or how impractical it is.

  7. A quick note, my baby son had me purchase a pair of white vans for him some time ago. Wore them for a week until they had some mud stains on them…… has not worn them since.

  8. For $20 they can have the ones I left in the garage because I stepped in dog shit last fall.
    …If it makes someone feels special walking in SouthBeach or Monte Carlo…
