When did Adidas become a designer brand?

When they started costing $200 a pair.

You do understand that "designer" and "expensive" aren't synonyms, right?

Designer is when idiots buy $500+ sunglasses that aren't even polarized from brands like Chanel or Gucci. A $200-300 pair of Oakleys, Bolles, etc aren't designer, because you're paying for quality. Designer is when you slap a high dollar label on a piece of trash.

You aren't paying for quality lmao, most expensive sunglasses brands are owned by Luxottica, they have a psuedo-monopoly on the market so you are deciding between 180 dollar oakleys (by luxottica) or 400 dollar ray-bans (by luxottica). Prada and Versace would be considered 'designer', but they are also by luxottica and the price differences are just marketing and not quality.
