1. US$1.8 million: Grammy Nike Air Yeezy
As we already told you here, this is the design that has just redefined the sneaker culture forever. The exclusively Kanye co-creation with Nike features soft black leather with perforated detailing throughout the upper. The leather used makes these sneakers is even more valuable, and you can take a look at the entire process of building the Air Yeezy in these pics.
2. US$615,000: Shattered Backboard Air Jordan 1
Before Kanye West got into this game, the AJs dominated the scene. The design that accompanied Michael Jordan on his dunks has a full-grain leather structure in red and black.
3. US$560,000: Prototype game-worn Air Jordan 1
The prototype that transformed the Jumper Man's sneakers into an icon of world culture went up for auction last year and far exceeded the initial value estimated at US$350,000.
This design features the upper of the Air Ship with the sole of the Air Jordan 1, in red and white leather.
4. US$437,500: Moon Shoe Nike prototype
The Nike Waffle Racing Flat, aka Moon Shoe, was designed by Nike co-founder and renowned Oregon University Track Coach Bill Bowerman for runners at the 1972 Olympic trials. Only 12 pairs of this design were created, with sole traction and leather suede structure.
5. US$409,000: Roger Bannister four-minute mile shoes
The shoes Bannister wore when he broke the four-minute mile were sold in 2015 for more than five times the expected amount. He clocked 3 minutes 59.4 seconds in the historic race in 1954 when he was a 25-year-old medical student. With leather structure, they were considered the lightest shoes of the time.
What design will take Kanye West's place at the top of that ranking?
These are not up for auction, but they are valuable to us.
