Fashion designer Rick Owens is selling a skateboard for $15,000

Wednesday September 17th, 2014

American fashion designer Rick Owens is selling a one-of-a-kind skateboard for the low, low price of £9,470. Wait a second, that's almost $15,500.

The board is being sold by English department store Selfridges, which offers the following description: 

Handcrafted out of petrified wood, this one-off skateboard deck,custom made by the Rick Owens team is a truly luxe way to travel. Due to the delicate nature of this item it is a display piece only, skating is not advised.

The board is black and gray with streaks on the bottom of what might be rust. It's all scratched and beat up and definitely not worth 15 grand.

You're better off buying Matt Albers' pants.
