  • This Louis Vuitton Football is Ridiculously Expensive

    Football; there's a reason they call it the beautiful game. It's a sport that unites all, breaks down borders and keeps many Cairo cafes in business. Aside from this abomination, it's rare that the worlds of football and fashion have met - at least in this universe - though Louis Vuitton has always had a weird relationship with the world's most popular sport - and it doesn't get much weirder than the Louis Vuitton football. Made to commemorate the 1998 World Cup in France, the ball can be purchased for whopping €25,033.20 (221,425LE).

    Now, unless you're Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the increasing number of players wearing pink boots these days or a 19 year old Saudi prince, we're not sure who could or would have the cojones to fork out such an outrageous sum for a piece of inflated leather printed in a logo that has come to represent all that is tacky in the world.  But then again, it comes with a nifty little ball holder that will ensure that you look hella' fly at the Nady or in an Imbaba back-alley. If you're still not convinced,  it's actually on sale at the moment - it was originally  €35,568.60. That's almost 410,000LE.
