A pair of Apple sneakers has sold at auction in Dallas for more than $16,000.
The sneakers were lined up for auction early last month. They were ultra-rare Apple sneakers that were made exclusively for Apple employees in partnership with Adidas in the 1990s. Back in 2016, a pair auctioned with an estimated price of $30,000, but didn't hit the target. Now, this most recent pair has sold for over $16,000. From the report:
The report notes that these sneakers have previously provided inspiration for high-end fashion reboots:
The sneakers are the second high-profile Apple auction to drop in recent days. A couple of weeks ago a pristine and fully-working Apple-1 computer sold at auction for a whopping $458,711.25.
