This "Buy This" post is reserved for the very rich (or for regular folks with sub-par financial sense): custom-made throwback Batman & Robin hi-top sneakers for £500.00 ($771 US) per pair courtesy of BrassMonki.

I wanted to make a joke about how shoes this expensive could conceivably result in the birth of a new Batman-style villain called "The Shoemaker," so I tossed that name into wikipedia to make sure there wasn't already a Batman villain with that name (I wouldn't be surprised if there was, given the large amount of mostly forgotten bad guys Batman fought in the Silver Age). As near as I can tell, the most significant evil fictional character called "Shoemaker" was Ugu The Shoemaker, who faced not the Dynamic Duo, but rather Ms. Dorothy Gale from Kansas.
