materialistic

























vintage vans style #44 authentic
burgandy canvas
ecru scene
made in usa circa 1991
new
USw7.5/UK5

if you appreciate the use of materials, in aforementioned shoe for example, does this make one materialistic? take the use here of the malleable ecru rubber scene, durable cloth laces & antique brass eyelets. what if the appreciation is a deep emotional, almost spiritual connection with what they represent. can the attachment to such materials thus be philosophically & morally justified? what about a follower of materialism who thinks physical matter is the only reality. isn't (s)he then the most materialistic..... or is all this simply immaterial?
