Is this recession over yet? First we found Alexander McQueen's gemsuit adding sparkle to West 14th Street, and now we run across some seriously indulgent sneakers in the Soho Scoop.
These gold-dipped Nike Dunks from Just Another Rich Kid topple the scales not only in weight?if you think they are wearable, think again?but in price: $4,500. Displayed under glass towards the center back of the store, the these
paperweights art pieces don't strike us as appealing to the Scoop customer, unless Kanye is stopping by.
Do you think someone will snap these up as a Father's Day present? We expect they'll continue to gather dust, as according to the brand's website, they were made back in 2007.
