These $2,200 Sneakers Are Going Viral On The Internet For Obvious Reasons

These $2,200 Sneakers Are Going Viral On The Internet For Obvious Reasons

A pair of sneakers have debuted on the internet and everyone is very interested in the design.

While these Maison Margiela Black Fusion Low Sneakers look like your run-of-the-mill shoes, a small design feature is causing people on social media to lose their minds.

It's being called a 'transparent rubberised trim' as well as a 'Melted effect detail' however everyone reckons it looks like something else...loads of hot glue (get your mind out of the gutter).

What's even more outrageous is that these bad boys will set you back a casual $2,183 (£1,125).

That's probably because these sneakers have 'low-top buffed calfskin and mesh sneakers in black', 'perforated detailing at round toe', 'lace-up detailing in grey and black at vamp', 'logo embossed at black padded tongue', 'signature white stitch at padded mesh collar' and a 'treaded rubber sole in black'.

Sounds pretty ritzy but it would be hard rocking these in public without everyone thinking you had blown a load over your shoes.

But if you think these are weird looking shoes, wait till your eyes get a whiff of these.

Designer clog brand Crocs has joined forces with fast-food giant KFC to bring the world just what it needs right now: poultry-scented sandals. Yep - that is what we've all been asking for.

Set to go on sale later this year, the 'KFC x Crocs' shoes are a feat of podiatric engineering.

Complete with the chain's famous red and white branding and two meaty charms, the clogs were launched in collaboration with New York Fashion Week.

Launching the interesting design, Crocs' website says: "Do you love world famous fried chicken? Do you love Crocs? Do you love brand spokespersons like Colonel Sanders? Then, boy, howdy, do we have something for you.

"Covered in a fried chicken print and a striped base, these will make your dreams of wearing a bucket of chicken finally come true.

"Finally. Your two favourite brands, immortalised on a rivet to prove a collaboration happened.

"Each pair of co-branded footwear comes with two Jibbitz charms made to resemble and smell like fried chicken."

Adding: "Not for human consumption."

But this is just one in a long line of bizarre takes on the classic Croc. Last year, we were treated to GOTH CROCS.

That's right: Crocs, but with a unique gothic twist. Said 'Goth Crocs' have been spotted on Etsy, where they're being sold for £190.60 ($248.62), plus delivery, by US store Heavy Cream.

And before that, Chinatown Market created a version that were covered in AstroTurf.
