Who would buy and wear these boots for this price?

It seems like a lot of people because there are only two sizes left so far.
The street bum look is now acceptable.

Try to understand that fashion senses are different from one and another.

A teenager might go for Nike, while a fashion designer would spend on Dior.

Even the Salvation Army thrift store wouldn't sell something as bad as that. You could probably buy a new pair of boots and go find a homeless guy who would gladly trade you for his beat up boots.

Rich people who want to look poor. What's that about?

It's as if somebody bought them new in some foreign country, then wore them to death, and tossed them into a charity clothing box to donate them for someone who needs clothes, just anything to wear. Then the charity found a stupid American public to pay more than they would for new clothes. Hopefully the charity put the money to good use buying new jeans for the needy. ...and the cycle continues.

just speculating.

But why would anyone want to pay good money for torn up jeans? I keep a pair of old jeans around the house for doing yard work, car washing, painting, etc. Same thing with a pair of old shoes.

People are just paying money to make it look like they're active. Like I said, they're just lazy people with money to spend on useless illogical things.
