See the $1,425 'destroyed' sneakers now on sale at Neiman Marcus

Neiman Marcus has joined the trend of worn-out clothes with new high-top sneakers designed by Maison Margiela. Keri Lumm (@thekerilumm) has the story.

Need some new kicks to pair with Nordstrom's clear-knee mom jeans and mud-covered pants?

Look no further than Nieman Marcus, which is cashing in on the designer trend of pre-ripped and muddied apparel with $1,425 "destroyed" sneakers from Maison Margiela.

The white and yellow shoes, available on Nieman Marcus' site, feature peeling and distressed leather uppers seemingly held together with staples, with laces that don't look very tie-able. It's nothing new for the luxury brand, which is known for avant-garde designs and over-the-top fashion shows. But the sneakers are the latest high-priced example of deconstructed apparel on department store shelves, a trend that reached new lows with Nordstrom's pre-muddied "Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans," retailing for $425.
