Dad sneakers just got blinged.
Gucci’s “Journey” Jewel Embellished shoe debuted on the Nordstrom website Thursday, and at $1,590, it’s the site’s most expensive sneaker.
It’s also the most . . . eye-catching.
With a massive sole, silver grommets and puffy padding around the ankle, the “Journey” is as clunky as it gets. Then, the entire shoe is wrapped in a removable crisscross strap studded with giant, sparkling crystals.
It’s as if a tween raided her father’s closet and swiped his favorite weekend shoes, then tricked them out for a school play.
The “Journey” is available in two colorways: a clownish brown/blue/red and the comparatively simple white/gold. Both are available to ship around mid-November, according to the Nordstrom site.
Mind your eyes — and your wallet.
