How much would you spend for a dirty-looking pair of shoes? Okay, these shoes from Gucci aren't actually dirty, but they were made to have a "distressed" look.

Oh by the way, a pair of these shoes go for $ 870 .

The Gucci Screener Leather Sneaker for men comes in three varieties, and are supposed to resemble a pair of shoes from the 70s.

"A pastiche of different influences that span across decades, the Cruise 2019 collection references old school shapes and materials inspired by vintage sportswear," the product description says. "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."

Believe it or not, the athletic shoes have detailed cleaning instructions that include "using only neutral or same-color products to avoid staining."

For women, you're not out of luck. A less colorful distressed pair of women's shoes are selling for $790 on Gucci 's website.
