If there’s one factor that binds our fractured society collectively in instances of want, it’s a shared disdain for Millennials held by everybody who shouldn’t be a part of the age bracket. All the pieces we do is seen as some form of abomination and makes an attempt to reverse the lazy/egocentric/triggered stereotypes normally show futile. Among the many best zingers to lob up is the avocado toast trope. The subtext being kids are unable to save lots of up and purchase a home as a result of they’re too busy spending cash on frivolous objects, like costly and classy breakfast.
As a result of that is America and the free market will do what it does, Saucony has launched a gimmick to capitalize on the dialogue with avocado toast-themed sneakers. And people, right here is the place I implore you to wade by means of the ridiculousness of the premise and bask within the superb magnificence of those as a substitute.
These scrumptious kicks retail for $130? Shut up and take my cash. I’ll be the clown and financially imprudent Millennial for that value. Make no mistake right here, Saucony shouldn’t be paying me to say good issues about these sneakers. Actually, it was a significant shock to study they’re nonetheless within the footwear sport.
Look, the sensible a part of my mind is aware of this can be a shameless advertising and marketing ploy. The opposite half, although, the lizard half, simply screams “give me, give me, give me.” I’m discover admitting that. It is a secure house, in spite of everything, and remaining on-brand is vital.
Might do with out the Holy Saucamole pun although. An individual ought to retain some shred of dignity.
