"Everything for some clicks."


"You’ve already given them your money lol. Selling them for scrap at least would make better sense."


"Needy people with no shoes or clothes to wear will cry seeing this. They might not care or even know Balenciaga, they just see wearable things, that actually can be donated to them, gone before their eyes."
