I swear the hype is ridiculous these days granted that particular style was trash with the materials although I will say the grey was nice its crazy how one season shoes that never sold are sold out. I've always like the Margiela High Strap mainly because they are the next best thing to the Fujiwara shoe I saw years ago on HB. I remember when I was going to cop the all black leather pairs from Barneys for under 5 and just asked my bro what do you think of these and he was like they look like boxing shoes, tried to clown on the low which swayed me from not copping. Smh I guess I'll just have to chalk up that $935 knowing darn well the market value really isn't that price the hype price is.
I don't really see the hype as being "ridiculous", a lot of people still don't like them. it just seems like the more seasons they've been out the more people are aware of em. and not just recently, like I said the gold and silver "mirror" versions were pretty popular among the hypebeasts.
if you think about it new silhouettes rarely get a lot of love right away, it has to grow on people. Plus the high end shoe market is different now, I'm sure the MMM average customer back then wasn't a fan of the shoe. I guess they used to retail for around 500$ but that was a lot of money for sneakers back then, sneaker prices are so inflated that it seems cheap now but that was a different time. I'm still tryna figure out how Louboutin gets away with charging 1.5k for Chuck Taylor's with spikesEdited by Mart Da God - 3/3/14 at 8:54am
