    I've always wondered about these really expensive shoes. Now I know that department stores have great power compared to regular designer stores when it comes to lowering prices.

    Oh yeah this was the shoe the article was talking about.

    i recently saw a pair of beautiful margiela pumps that i was dying for...i saw them in london and again here in nyc...the price was $670... :eek: ...for a simple pair of perfect black pumps...absolutely shocking!!!... :ninja:... i passed... :innocent: ...but i will dream about them for years... :cry: ...prices are out of control...

    thx for the very informative post...i realy don't see how these smaller designers are going to make it...at these prices...they won't sell enough shoes to stay in business... :unsure:

    i had NO idea it cost that much to make shoes. thanks for a very informative article!

    O/T but did anyone see the daily candy about how you could take these classes to learn to make your own shoes? sounded very interesting.

    But what about the $2000 Dolce & Gabbana jeans? :unsure: It just seems like jeans could NOT cost more than a few hundred to produce...

    D&G picks for the name. As a conclusion, you can earn much more on clothes, then on shoes! :lol:
    Anyway...
