Psst… wanna buy a pair of shoes? These sneakers are up for auction at Heritage Auctions, and they can be yours if you are the highest bidder. By the time the auction ends on Sunday, the price is estimated to go to around $30k. Slate tells us,
In the early 1990s, Apple built prototypes for a pair of blocky, white sneakers, exclusively for Apple employees. With their sateen tongues and vintage rainbow logo, they’re either a normcore dream or the ultimate dad shoe, and they quickly disappeared into obscurity. In 2007, one of these rare items emerged on eBay and sold for $79. Now another is on the market—the only other, according to Heritage Auctions—but it won’t go for a pittance.
It's probably not Apple fanboys making those bids, but sneaker collectors who know a rarity when they see one. Oh, they are size 9 1/2, if that makes a difference to you. Make your bid at Heritage Auctions. -Thanks, John Farrier!
