If your favorite running shoes and your Teva water tennies had a baby, the Dior "Fusion" sneakers would be the result. And you'd have the privilege of paying $1,100 to wear them.

Unless these black stretch knit leggings from Givenchy slim you down by 15 pounds, we're not sure what that $1,834 price tag is all about.

The description for these Shourouk Wimblee Swarovski-embellished stretch terry wristbands—designed in collaboration with 2013 Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli—states that they're "not just for the gym; wear yours to brighten up off-duty looks." That's a nice thought, but at $245 each, we don't know if we'd be able to wear them without breaking into a cold sweat at the thought of getting them dirty.

These Rick Ownens cashmere pants feature a dropped crotch and relaxed drape and comes in at $1,570. What else you could do with that kind of cash? Pay one month's rent in NYC, go on a road trip across the U.S., make a down payment on a car, or literally fly round-trip to London.

The flamingo pink color is bright and summery, but at $910, unless Maria Sharapova herself once used it, your money is better spent joining a tennis club.
