Sneakerheads, prepare your wallets.
Apple sneakers made exclusively for employees in the ‘90s are currently for sale online at the auction house Heritage Auctions. Two important things you should know if you’re looking to purchase the sneakers: the shoes are a men’s size 9 1/2 and the starting bid is currently $15,000.
Elon Werner, director of communications with Heritage Auctions, told HuffPost that the shoes came from a garage sale in San Francisco. Werner believes the shoes were a promotional item produced by Apple, though not many pairs were made. He’s only seen one other pair of the Apple shoes before in a size 8 1/2.
According to Heritage Auctions, the shoes are estimated to go for over $30,000 at the final sale. For that kind of money, these kicks had better come with Steve Jobs’ signature.
Online bidding on the sneakers has already started and a live auction will be held on Heritage Live this Sunday, June 11.
In 2012, images of a similar Apple sneaker popped up on Imgur:
Business Insider reports that a pair of Apple sneakers sold on eBay for $79 in 2007.
If you’re just in the mood to buy some expensive sneakers that have a little wear and tear, and you don’t care too much about Apple, Neiman Marcus has you covered. The retailer is currently selling “Future Destroyed High-Top Sneakers” from luxury designer Maison Margiela for a whopping $1,425.
