Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Check out the gallery for tips on how to wear your Birks with pride, and relish in your utter lack of foot pain while you're at it.
