The auction price of the Nike Air Easy sneakers worn by American hip-hop star Kanye West was sold at 1.8 million dollars for about 2 billion won in our money.
The auction company Sotheby’s announced on the 26th local time that West’s sneakers were three times the highest priced sneakers sold at a previous auction, AFP reported.
The previous highest price was Nike Air Jordan, which was sold for 680 million won with our money at Christie’s auction in August last year.
West performed’Hey Mama’ and’Stronger’ at the 2008 Grammy Awards, wearing these black ankle-sized sneakers.
The sneakers, jointly produced by West and Nike, were sold and finished production until April 2009.
It was the first time Nike has teamed up with a celebrity who wasn’t an athlete to create a running shoe.
