Fashion Math: Are Michael Kors' Logo Sandals Worth a Walk to the Bank?

If you’re anything like me, you blow through at least one pair of black thong sandals per summer, then spend the first few warm weeks the next year hunting down a new perfect pair to ultimately destroy. But what about a pair of thong sandals that outlast a little city-street wear and tear, that persevere and live to see another summer? Michael Kors is apparently confident that his spin on classic black patent leather thongs lives up to high expectations—he’s charging $211 a pair and slapping his initial logo right smack in the center. But how many wears do these babies have to last to make it worth spending more than 200 bucks? A little fashion math will help us figure it out:


If you grab your MK thongs before the first official day of summer, June 21, and wear them for at least a few minutes every day until fall kicks off, you’ll come in at less than $3 a wear for the season. Keep in mind that fashion math can’t account for you boycotting the quippy Mr. Kors when he disses your favorite Project Runway contestant.
