NEW YORK (AP) — Mud jeans are so last week. The latest destroyed fashion item to light up social media is a ripped-up sneaker that sells for $1,425 at Neiman Marcus.
Pictures on the department store’s website show a white and yellow high-top sneaker with large holes, peeling leather and numerous scratches. Neiman Marcus says online that the sneakers have “heavy distressing,” and are an example of Maison Margiela’s “avant-garde fashion.”
Just last week, rival Nordstrom got its share of social media attention for selling dirty-looking jeans with caked-on mud for $425.
A representative for Neiman Marcus did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
