Most of you (and by that I include myself into this kind of thinking) say to yourself that wearing out your trusted pair of Converse sneakers will surely diminish their (market) value. Here’s the Free People to prove us reverse economy is a reality.
Their recently issued Converse look really, really worn out. The Free People say that the sneakers have been hand ripped and washed to shred them as vintage-y as possible. Now if you ask me, I think we can find far better ways to spend $128 than this, not to mention that you old, torn Converse have a sentimental value, way more important than a hundred bucks a Converse-pair can bring. That’s just me. How about you? (via)
