Baby needs a new pair of $530 shoes – Village Idiot

A high-end retail chain is selling what looks like a pair of used tennis shoes that have a large strip of tattered duct tape across the toe — for $530. Poverty Chic. They’re shabby on purpose, so you’ll look as if you don’t have $530 to your name. I’m pretty sure there are cheaper ways to look as if you don’t have any money. I’m sure your pool boy would be willing to part with some old clothes for a lot less than $530. Some people think this is outrageous — the most fortunate trying to appear less fortunate — but it smells like an opportunity to me. I’ve got a pair of sweatpants with holes and stains that I’m now thinking of putting on eBay. Only $260! Get your bids in now, kids, they won’t last long! I’m also listing a large cardboard box that you can carry to the underpass and live in. At $1,200, it’s a steal. Really, it is! I stole it from behind the supermarket.
