Apparently, some people think it's ridiculous to make six hundred dollar (just a guess here) shoes that were intended to slosh around a campsite.
But it reminded me of the preface to The Picture of Dorian Gray.
"We can forgive a man for making a useful thing as long as he does not admire it. The only excuse for making a useless thing is that one admires it intensely.
All art is quite useless."
So go ahead and look at those babies. Because, while they are useless - and I'm sure ADG's not going anywhere near the woods in those things - they are beautiful.
