Shut up, this is just too much! Sneaks with diamonds? Obviously they haven't been paying attention to luxury trends, because these Nike So Cal 1's only have 11 carats. Antwan Patton, aka Big Boi, got the pair. The two guys that made the shoes valued them at $50,000. I think I've seen grills that cost more than that! They are available to the public immediately -- no waiting.
Implications - Luxury products are synonymous with being vastly impractical, and as a result, businesses who release such products have suffered due to the recession. As opposed to creating useless luxury products, companies should decide upon useful products with high-end touches in order to appear practical.
