Kanye West’s Nike Air Yeezys Sell For $1.8 Million, A New Auction Record

The famous sneaker worn by West at the 2008 Grammy Awards was sold for $1.8 million, a new world record price for a pair of sneakers.

Kanye West’s 2008 Grammy worn Nike Yeezy has been sold for a world record fee according to Reuters.

The famous sneaker worn by West at the 2008 Grammy Awards was sold for $1.8 million, a new world record price for a pair of sneakers. The private sale demolished the current auction of $560,000 that Sotheby’s paid for a pair of 1985 Air Jordan 1’s.

Nike Air Yeezy samples were prototypes for a line developed by West and Mark Smith for Nike. They were revealed during Kanye West’s performance at the 2008 Grammy Awards.

The buyer was sneaker investing platform RARES, which paid the highest publicly recorded price for the pair. They were put up for sale at Sotheby’s by New York collector Ryan Chang.
