A few weeks ago, news that Kanye West and Nike’s first collaborative sneakers, Air Yeezy, were being auctioned. At the time, the value of this pair was expected to be about $1 million, and a price far exceeding that in a recent actual auction succeeded in setting a new historical record.
Reportedly, the auctioned prototype ‘Air Yeezy 1’ successfully won a bid of $1.8 million. This far exceeds the Air Jordan 1, which was autographed by Michael Jordan, which was awarded $560,000 in May 2020.
The auctioned prototype ‘Air Yeezy 1’ was worn by Kanye West when performing “Stronger” and “Hey Mama” on the stage of the 2008 Grammy Awards
