gucci on nike

I was going to write about something or another of relative significance when suddenly two of my coworkers, both in supervisorial roles (I think I'm in a position subordinate to just about everyone) started talking about these new shoes that one of them got for her son. A pair of sixty dollar shoes, taken in to some place where some fabric with the Gucci logo was applied in strategic locations, for $45 per shoe. The shoes cost $60. Total cost: $150. Level of ridiculousness: thoroughly high. I pointed to my own shoes at some point: "$10". The wonders of Ross Dress for Less cease not. Alas. Yes, I too would love a pair of pre-Reebok acquisition Doc Marten black low-top shoes for $100, but food must be had, rent must be paid. etc.
