I'm just going off the symbols I see in pics posted in this thread. It's very obvious that a lot of people don't seem to be of high means but they're wearing $500 sneakers. Another strange thing I see is people looking for sales/deals, like to save $50 or something insignificant. If you find yourself spending an hour or two scouring websites for a deal on $500 sneakers you're not in the bracket to afford them. Furthermore, a $500k condo in a major city isn't really doing it THAT big, but I consider it baseline for splurging on shoes like this. Just being real with y'all. You are never going to really have it if you're obsessed with faking it. Control your impulses and save your dough. You're not fooling anyone if you don't really have it like that. Believe me.
Do you realize how small of % of people that is? $500K condo in a major city with an $80K car, net worth probably in the millions or so if you can afford a $500K condo.
Just for fun only 2.9% of couples even make over $250K in household income. I'd imagine the number of single men under the age of 40 making $250K-$1 million is probably well under 1%. Basically these companies would go out of business if they only sold to single guys making $250K-$1million under the age of 40.
By most measures, a $250,000 household income is substantial. It is five times the national average, and just 2.9 percent of couples earn that much or more.
