Lasting obsession: Oh my Margiela!

No shoes have ever held me emotionally hostage for so long as these Maison Martin Margiela sneakers have. For the past two years, I have looked at them on and off and expended oh god knows how many brain cells on justifying that they are not just some coveted fashion items but also long-lasting investments. Which is actually true. Thus far, I have not succumbed to the temptation during sales season yet for the simple reason that I do not have a few hundred bucks lying around to splurge on a pair of sneakers. Strangely enough, when sales are over, I always get back to exactly where I am pre-sales–drooling all over them and contemplating whether it’s time I finally put down the payment. This recurring predicament is really not doing me any good, especially when the colors and prints for fall have been updated. Damn it, they are even more lust-worthy than before. Here commences the internal struggle, AGAIN.
