R5k, so basically kak ugly shoes or a 2nd hand 1080 / 40" TV...lol

Wish there was one of those "how much do these cost to make" vid's on these ugly ass shoes.... Like you get on the Beats products.
Funny enough, Beats by .Dre products have improved over the time period.

Sure, they aren’t what I’d want in a pair of headies and they probably cost next to $5 to make but they have worked on improving them.

The drivers are better and there is a focus on better bass but a few channels have found people who prefer that to regular headphones.

I’m with you on the cost of the shoes too. They probably cost more in RND and marketing than actual parts but hey, if it fits, I sits.

Proper running shoes rely on good basic features and some marketing with key athletes, rather than paying the entire team of Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea to come out of the team bus, wearing your product.

I went into an Adidas LifeStyle shoe store this past weekend to look at their ugly shoes.

I found a pair that I’d never seen before and ask the sales reps “why does this exist?”. Their answer “we don’t know, we’ve never sold a pair”.

LoL
