Do Trainers Really Cost This Much?

I always knew that the price of  trainers was always on the increase but recently i had a real shock when I found out that a couple of hundred pounds was the norm and sometimes over a thousand pounds.

Lets take a look at a few that I’ve randomly selected with the price tag in mind . Here’s a few i found on Amazon. Click on the picture of the trainer to see the real price , can you guess?

Giuseppe Zanotti 

Born in 1957 in a town in Italy well known for shoe making , Giuseppe Zanotti started off his career in the 1980’s .

In the early 1990’s Giuseppe acquired his first shoe making factory and set about working on his company .

In 1994 Giuseppe travelled to New York to present his first Giuseppe Zanotti collection . Barneys New York , Saks Fifth Avenue , Neiman Marcus , Harrods , Harvey Nichols are just a few of the luxury retailers that are still with the brand up till today .

The first Giuseppe Zanotti store opened it’s doors in Milan in 2000 and was followed by more stores in New York , Paris , London , Moscow , Hong Kong , Los Angeles, Miami , St Tropez .

2016 saw Giuseppe Zanotti celebrate the opening of his 100th store in Shanghai and today employs up to 650 staff who are responsible for making approximately 600,000 pairs of footwear .

It’s always interesting to hear people’s views on what they think of high end trainers and also what price you would pay .
