Gucci Python Low-Top Sneaker

For: Men
What you're paying for: Exotic python skin
How many pairs of the LeBron 12 you could buy for the same price: Seven

Consider this Gucci shoe the Nike Kobe 9 EM of luxury sneakers. While most of its counterparts are high-tops,  the low-top sneaker still holds it's own against them. However, instead of having a graphic upper, these sneakers are actually made of python. Then there's the Mamba-Python comparison, but that's just too easy.
