Big ticket auction sites have been partaking in the hype of sneakers like crazy! This time Sotheby’s is now working hand in hand with Chicago sneaker place English Sole for a curation of the rarest pairs known to man with a 50 piece sneaker auction dubbed as “Scarce Air.”
Remember the Jordan 1 auction that ended in $560,000? Well, that may have opened the floodgates to more insane things.
Included in the curation are mismatched Yeezy 2s and the Air Force 1s, signed by Kanye West himself, along with those crazy metallic gold Air Jordans from Usher—the set consists of an Air Jordan 3, Air Jordan 9, and Air Jordan 11.
You can also find signed Eminem “Encore” and Carhartt X Jordan 4s which cost a real pretty crazy penny (like a little over a million Pesos)! One scan of the photos and you’ll be drooling in no time. Also, we can’t ignore those golden Undefeated X Fukijama Entourage Gold Air Force 1s!
It has to be said that any self respecting sneaker collector would want these pairs to be in their collection. As deep as one’s knowledge can be about their history, it’s how deep one’s pockets can go—a big chunk of these pairs are made in very small quantities, hence the asking price..
The pairs are so influential that not only do they span shoe history, they also encompass music, entertainment and design…basically pop culture at its very best!
Estimated at an insane $800,000, owning even a pair from this lot will catapult your collection to legendary status. Bids for Sotheby’s sneaker auction are welcome here until March 29–and that’s assuming you have the cash to spend for one of these holy grail-level pairs.
On the more affordable side of things, this Jordan 11 just got a comfy makeover.
