Remember the $425 pair of denim jeans with fake caked-on mud sold at Nordstrom that lit up the Twittersphere a couple of weeks ago?
Well, they're so last month.

A pair of sneakers sold by upscale retailer Neiman Marcus are drawing attention both for their $1,425 price tag and the fact that they look like a dog ate them. The "Future Destroyed High-Top Sneaker," designed by Maison Margiela, retails for $1,425 on Neiman Marcus' website, but the price tag is far from the most attention-grabbing part of the page -- the sneakers themselves look like they've been destroyed by a dog. The white sneakers have been partially shredded -- or, as the product description puts it, they were subjected to "heavy distressing" -- to reveal the bright yellow stuffing. The upscale shopper looking to downscale their look might seek to pair the pre-destroyed sneakers with a pair of $425 Nordstrom jeans that come pre-caked with mud. The more clean-conscious consumer might want to forgo the dirty jeans in favor of "Clear Knee Mom Jeans," which retail for the comparatively low price of $95.
