In case you鈥檝e been hiding in a cave for the past week, allow us to introduce you to the Internet鈥檚 favorite new teenager: Daniel Lara. The 14-year-old California schoolboy rose to viral fame after his friend Josh Holz posted a video on Twitter showing off Daniel鈥檚 super fresh outfits. The standout piece of attire? His white vans.

With the video receiving over 418,000 likes and the boys paying a recent visit to Ellen , you could say that Daniel鈥檚 shoes are perhaps the most coveted footwear of the moment 鈥 and it seems people are prepared to pay big bucks to get their hands on them. Over on eBay, there are currently more than 1,000 listings for 鈥Damn Daniel White Vans .鈥 The top listing is currently selling for over $400,000 and has 84 bids . We repeat: a USED pair of Vans is selling for 8,888% the price of a brand new pair. And the craziest part? They鈥檙e not even Daniel鈥檚!

When Ellen told Daniel about how much the Vans were selling for online he responded, 鈥淭hat鈥檚 a little expensive, right?鈥 Uh, correct. He goes on to say, 鈥淭hey鈥檙e not mine. They鈥檙e not even slip-ons, actually.鈥

To be honest, we鈥檙e not really sure what the right reaction to this is. Should we be impressed that someone with a pair of old shoes figured out how to use them to make enough to pay for a house in cash? Should we be sad for the person who bid on them and is now realizing their entire life savings was spent on a hoax? Should we just sit back and accept that the Internet is a weird, weird place? We鈥檙e going to go with that last option if that鈥檚 alright with all of you.

What鈥檚 the most you鈥檇 ever spend to own Damn Daniel鈥檚 shoes? Share with us on Twitter @BritandCo .
