Would You Buy These Gucci Sneakers for $1,600?

Alessandro Michele debuted chunky jewel-covered hiker-influenced dad sneakers for Gucci fall ’18 at Milan Fashion Week in February and they just popped up on Nordstrom’s website on Thursday retailing for a whopping $1,590 — making them the most expensive sneaker on the site.

The style, dubbed the Journey, certainly makes a statement. You won’t go unnoticed in the kicks featuring removable crisscross straps adorned with massive, sparkling crystal studs, a giant flared sole, and a mix of multicolored metallic leathers. Moreover, each pair comes with a Gucci logo patch in the classic bold Sega font Inspired by iconic video game maker, Sega.

According to Nordstrom, if you decide to purchase, they will ship around mid-November, just in time for the holiday season. The shoes are also available in two additional colorways, green/black and all-black, via Gucci.com.
