Netizens confused over the exorbitant resale prices (~ $11,000) of G-Dragon's sneaker collaboration with Nike

AKP STAFF

Netizens have been voicing their confusion over the exorbitant resale prices of G-Dragon's collaboration shoes with Nike.

The sold-out sneakers went out quickly and are now being resold for as much as 13 million KRW (~11,000 USD). The release only allowed for a limited number of pairs to be available, leaving buyers in a frenzy trying to get their hands on one. 

However, netizens have been voicing their confusion over the phenomenon, stating: 
"You could use that towards your parents and your family..."

"The world is quite a strange place." 

"It would be more useful wiping s*** with that money instead."

"Are they buying it because they see value in them? The design is tacky."

What do you think?

Y’all know this is the price charged by resellers and not a price set by GD or Nike, right? I swear people are acting like he personally showed up to their houses and demanded that they buy his shoes.

I'm challenging AKP to stop making netizen-based articles. Random internet opinions is not news. These online commenters dont represent the majority of opinions, or even a plurality. It only represents the fringe and often unhinged percentage. Just like Twitter doesn't represent the majority. Why give them a platform? Could you imagine if the New York Times did whole articles about comments under an online article? Let's do better.
