    Maybe the real lesson here is that Yeezy's are as valuable, both monetarily and ergonomically, as a pair of $20 shoes

    Just goes to show that it doesn't fucking matter, they are just shoes. You wear them on your smelly ass feet and they get dirty. If you have over 2k for any pair of shoes you should be physically stopped from reproducing.
