Gucci is selling bejeweled sneakers for $1,590 — and people actually want to wear them
Gucci sells sneakers with removable jewel-encrusted straps for $1,590.
The sneakers are inspired by video game developer, Sega.
Available in five color options, the kicks are designed to resemble hiking shoes.
Online shoppers have mixed opinions on the shoes.
Gucci went viral earlier this year after debuting a pair of dad sneakers shaped like hiking boots, covered in rows of removable crystals.
One of the most memorable looks to come out of the “ugly shoe” trend this year, the brand’s embellished sneakers are now available for pre-order at Nordstrom, Who What Wear reported Thursday. Of course, these designer kicks don’t come cheap; a single pair will set you back $1,590.
According to Hypebae, Gucci first debuted the shoes at its Fall/Winter 2018 show during Milan Fashion Week in February earlier this year. The kicks were released five months later in July, ICON Magazine reported.
