They are still not a substitute for shoes. Sneakers will always be casual and just that. If the price is that big of a deal then maybe they shouldn't have been purchased. (Just my 2 cents)
i see what your saying but to say they are not a substitute for shoes?, if you can put them on your feet and walk around then they are technically shoes. Dont you agree the beauty of buying a shoe for $1000 is that after you pay for it you can do whatever you want with them, if i had the money to buy a $1000 pair of shoes i wouldnt think of them coming with the notion that i have to take care of them or that i can only wear them in designated places. Tell me you dont like seeing someone wear something that has been labeled "high-end" as if its any other kind of clothing, because lets be honest, "high-end" clothing is still just clothing.
edit- waitttttttttttt, i just re read your post. In your first sentence you say they are "just sneakers" then you say "they are still not a substitute for shoes". Now im not sure whether you would disagree or agree with my post.
