New DelhiIf you are thinking of throwing away your old, torn sneakers, hold on. Turns out they may just be the latest 'in-thing', or at least Gucci thinks so. One of the leading fashion designerwear brand, Gucci, has courted controversy once again by posting legit dirty sneakers and passing them off as couture. 

Using words such as 'old school' and 'vintage' to describe the sneakers, Gucci has also attached a heavy price tag of $790 to $890 to the shoes. Yes, that would be about INR 56,200-Rs 63,300. So, would you consider getting duped all in the name of fashion? Then you can check out their Screener leather sneaker on the brand's official website.

Take a dekko:

The website describes 'Influenced by classic trainers from the '70s, the Screener sneakers—named for the defensive sports move—feature the Web stripe on the side and vintage Gucci logo, treated for an allover distressed effect.'
