May 12, 2009 - We've seen a lot of ridiculous console merchandise come across our desks here at IGN Gear, and while there are an infinite number of excessive products, thankfully they retail at prices that aren't going to make you feel like you were left unguarded in a prison shower for five minutes. Today, unfortunately, that trend ends as we've been made aware of Xbox-themed shoes that cost more than six Xbox 360 Elite consoles. Do they interact with your games? Nope. Do you get free DLC by purchasing them? Nah. Will they result in you getting into a fight with the kid wearing the PS3 leather jacket? Winner winner chicken dinner!




The Xbox 360 Controller Shoe is designed to compliment the look of Microsoft's premiere gaming system, all for the low low price of $2,500. Yep, that is not a typo. Here's how the official description reads:

"These are an exclusive pair...only one of its kind. Patent leather back with embedded fiber optic wiring in the shape of the XBOX logo. Battery placement is in the tongue as well as on and off switch that has 2 settings: Strobe or Constant light functions. Gradient lime swoosh faded to black. The toe is painted in a surreal Tiger Camouflage with accents of lime and bright green. These are a men's size 11."


We don't know when strobe lighting for shoes started costing more than what we paid for our first car, but whatever. The bottom of the shoe contains the familiar Xbox 360 controller button layout, but the damn things are useless. You would think that for this price tag that you could at least USB these bastards into your system and log your worst game of Uno ever. Fat chance.

So now you're presented with a choice, get an Xbox 360 Elite console, 56" HDTV and decent 5.1 surround sound system, or...the most excessively priced shoes ever likely produced by a group of oppressed children. Choose wisely.

Why does the front have a bluish tear graphic? Looks pretty craptastic to me but there are people probably dying to have them just because there's only being one made.
