Here's A Pair Of PlayStation 4 Shoes For $950 - Complete With An HDMI Port

As Forrest Gump's Momma always told him, you can tell a lot about a person by the shoes they're wearing - where they're going. Where they've been. How much money they're willing to waste on designer footwear. 

Okay, I may have made that last part up. 

That doesn't make it any less true, mind you - especially if you see someone wearing the latest custom design in the Air Jordan line, courtesy of FreakerSNEAKS' Jonny Barry. Called the "JRDN 4 X PS4," the pair of shoes is a fusion between the aesthetics of Sony's console and the classic Air Nike look -  each shoe even features an HDMI port on the heel.

Sounds pretty cool so far, right? There's just one tiny problem - the shoes cost about $500 more than the console. That's right, folks; if you want to pick up a pair of JRDN 4 X PS4's for yourself, you'll need to drop the tidy sum of $950.

Oh, and as for the HDMI jacks, they don't actually do anything. 

"The HDMI ports have no real function, apart from looking cool," Barry explained to Dualshockers. "They actually come with a custom Jordan HDMI cable that when attached, can act as a type of carry cord for walking around sneaker conventions or something!"  I still can't tell if he's serious or not - this feels like a well-done joke to me. 

I don't think it is, though. Barry says he plans to release the shoes in a run of ten - meaning that once the tenth pair has sold, anyone else who wants to pick one up will be completely out of luck. Each set of JRDN 4 X PS4's will come with a custom box and its own HDMI cable.

I'm sure there's a comment in here somewhere about consumerist culture, but I'm frankly too bewildered to make it. Those of you who - for some reason - think you'd be interested in your very own pair of PS4-brand sneakers can get in touch with Barry at either email (info@freakersneaks.com) or his Instagram page (@freakersneaks). Enjoy your new shoes, I guess?
