That's one order I'd regret accidentally clicking on the 1-click ordering button.

Still confused how Amazon patented that feature, but hey, if it gets people to buy expensive shoes, I'm sure it's worth it.
 
2014-01-11 12:33:37 PM  
What's the used price!

No, you play Russian roulette. Turn on 1-click, close your eyes, move the mouse and click.

I love the one guy calling people idiots for making fun of the shoes price... It's the pot calling the copper kettle black. They get it dumbass, they're just having fun.

Dammit, why couldn't an American company have made this shoe? If we sold just one pair to the Chinese, our trade deficit would disappear!
 
2014-01-11 12:37:48 PM  
I've never paid over $60 for a pair of shoes!
 
2014-01-11 12:37:56 PM  
No free shipping?  It's not worth the cost.
 
2014-01-11 12:39:32 PM  
Could have at least given free shipping!

The size 10s are only $94 - I'm not sure the extra inch is worth $886 million or so, but I'm not really into shoes, so...

Do you think this is some kind of money laundering scam?  Buy sneakers from South America via Amazon with stupid prices to pay for that shipment of um, "baby powder"?

For the price difference, I would rather have surgery to make my feet smaller.
 
2014-01-11 12:43:30 PM  
You think for that price shipping would be free

I have, many times. When you have feet as freakishly wide as mine, shoes that fit are worth every penny of their price. (my record so far is $240 for cycling shoes)

Or they could build the factory around me and make them from scratch. Either way, really.

Whenever I see an item for sale on the internet at unbelievably high prices, I think money laundering.

The cut Amazon's going to take on these would seem to make that a bad plan, but maybe.

I figured for $886,833,152,075.00 I would be getting the shoes of god himself. Thoughts of Run faster! Jump higher ! So i impulse bought these. But no it just wasn't so. After only a few hours I decided these were not the shoes for me. So then I remembered something from my early child hood watching bugs bunny cartoons...God spelt backwards is Dog! These are not the shoes of gods, they are chew toy shoes for dogs! Rex loves them. Unfortunately I can not merit spending another $886B on another pair for him to chew on as they only lasted a few hours before falling completely apart. The clean up was a mess...
 
2014-01-11 01:10:08 PM  
What area code is 886?  Because that looks like a phone number and $75 price for the shoes.

Wait, I googled and got Taiwan.  Good try Taiwan.

Yeah, just stick to the carpool with 19 of your friends.

Not Prime eligible, not interested.

One of my friends recently texted me a pic of "Jordan's" and said he was "thinkin about getting back into the sneaker game."

I'm currently questioning that friendship.

Someone put the UPC in the price field of their inventory upload file.

2014-01-11 01:31:54 PM  
Doesn't qualify for Amazon Prime shipping so I ain't getting it.

Man, I'm glad my feet are size 11.5....
 
2014-01-11 01:55:45 PM  
How unfair. As a woman with size six feet the only obscenely priced clothing I can look forward to are bejeweled undergarments of average proportion. At least you can see these shoes. I'd have to go shirtless, pantless, or wear sheer with that kind of undergarment.  And sheer is not professional.
 
2014-01-11 02:02:12 PM  
$4.99 shipping?

They always get you with those inflated shipping charges.

This is a repeat of the hundred times^100 someone else has noticed Amazon's pricing system getting a hiccup. Old story is old.

Ok, for $886 billion I want an extra inch for each foot, otherwise no deal.

886833152075 is either the UPC or EAN. I ran it through my bookseller tool and it spits back a $99 Adidas with a meh sales rank.

You'd think they could drop the shipping charge.

That's only for Air Jordan's.
