the 1980s classic Back to the Future Part two an exact replica of the crazy shoes shown in the film complete with an electroluminescent sole a 30,000 hour rechargeable battery and the iconic self-tying laces the air mags were released in a batch of only 1500 pairs the first pair of the batch were auctioned off on behalf of Michael J Fox as Parkinson’s diseasecharity they were purchased for the handsome some of $37,500 by British rapper Tinie Tempah number 9 Nike Air Force won by pre ancien tans Couture and jewelry sold for $50,000 the number9slot on our list belongs to a pair of sneakers that were made specially for American Big Boi of Outkast Fame if you aren’t familiar with Big Boi as an artist all you need to know is that when it comes to fashion and bling the big guy never holds back and this was certainly the case when he became the recipient of a pair of special Nike Air Force Ones customized by pre ancien tonsCouture and jewelry to boast not only the iconic Nike swoosh but also the small matter of 11 carats worth of diamonds and a healthy helping of gold as well the inclusion of the precious metals and gemstones took the value of the Air Force Ones to a whopping $50,000 number 8 Nike Air Yeezy1 graeme prototype sold for $50,000 at number 8 is the first mention of one of the most recent widely successful superstar sneaker collaborations in recent years Yeezy otherwise known as Kanye West this particular pair are the same shoes the rapper wore at the 2008 Grammy Awards which were coincidentally the same that were also used to announce the now iconic partnership with Nike different varieties of our Yeezys have gained huge popularity in recent years to become some of the most valuable shoes on the planet and though these Grammy prototypes were originally listed for $75,000 you can now pick them up for 50,000 number 7 autographed Nike Air Jordan 1 sold for $60,000 it’s safe to say that hundreds of different Nike Air Jordans are worth thousands of dollars simply due to the name of the iconic basketball legend that they carry but when you take  in the consideration of the presence of an actual autograph by the culture unifying superstar you can sit back and watch the value shoot into the sky this particular pair just so happened to be personally scribbled on by the great man himself taking their value from a couple hundred dollars to an eye-watering sixty thousand dollars they imagine having a name and identity that commands that much of a jump in rarity and worth we all want to be like Mike number six Drake’s Air Jordan 12 sold for seventy seven thousand dollars sometimes it’s the story behind a shoe combined with the quality that escalates the value and this is certainly the case with the number six pair on our list Canadian rapper Drake is one of the most fashion-forward figures in today’ship-hop industry and when he signed on with the Air Jordan brand he was presented with a special pair of Air Jordan 12s that in an act of random kindness he ended up gifting to a woman at a Toronto Raptors game obviously more savvy than sentimental the woman put her sneakers from Drake on sale and made an amazing seventy seven thousand dollars now that’s what we call getting bang for your buck interestingly at the same game Drake also gifted a pair of Air Jordan tents which only made fifteen thousand dollars when sold now before we head into the top 5 most expensive sneakers but why not take a second to watch our special video dedicated to all things Nike after all if there were no Nike there certainly wouldn’t be this great list to enjoy either you can watch 15 things you didn’t know about Nike by clicking in the top right corner number 5 Michael Jordan’s flu game Air Jordan 12s sold for one hundred and four thousand seven hundred and sixty five dollars in a similar story to drinks with a similar pair of sneakers cracking open the top five is this pair of Air Jordan 12s that were born by Michael Jordan himself during his infamous flu game this game was the 1997 Finals against Utah Jazz when despite suffering from a severe flu Jordan managed to score 38 points and secured his beloved Chicago Bulls a historic victory clearly ailing during the game Jordan was fed some applesauce by a young ball boy in an attempt to make him feel better and as a thank you the NBA star gifted him his match sneakers almost two decades after that fateful day the now adult ball boy sold those special shoes for a staggering 104 thousand seven hundred and sixty-five dollars that’s not bad at all for a small bowl of applesauce number four Michael Jordan’s gold medal-winning converse sold for 190 thousand three hundred and seventy three dollars breaking the previous record for the most ever paid for a pair of games sneakers at auction that we incidentally just told you about at number five a pair were sold for 190 thousand three hundred and seventy three dollars in June of 2017 again these were worn by Michael Jordan this time in the game against Spain in the playoffs for the gold medal in the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles unlike the other Jordan sneakers that appear on this list this pair are actually converse and are the last pair of Converse sneakers Jordan wore in an official game which was also Jordans final game as an amateur following the 96 to 65 win by the USA in which Jordan scored 20 points he turned professional and signed the now-famous deal with Nike the converse shoes are autographed by Jordan contain his ortho inserts and were obtained from the LA forum by a ball boy number three Nike Air Mags with Power laces sold for $200,000 we have already seen a pair of Nike Air Mags as seen in Back to the Future earlier on this list but that price of $37,500 was easily beaten by the price paid in three special options in 2016 the production run was 489 pairs only and were to raise money for the Michael J Fox foundation most pairs were raffled off with a ticket price of $10 but the three pairs that went to auction raised amazing sums the first pair reached one hundred and four thousand two hundred and sixty-seven dollars in Hong Kong the second pair went under the hammer in London for $56,000 but the final pair beat them all reaching $200,000 in New York’s auction rumor has it that someone in Japan paid 2.2 million dollars for a pair but we can’t find any evidence to corroborate the story that was posted on Newstalk cleveland.com number two the fire monkey sneakers sold at four million dollars named the fire monkey in celebration of the Chinese New Year these sneakers right 2016 collaboration between designer Dan Gamache of mash custom kicks and New York lifestyle label be shown they were designed specifically to raise funds at auction for soles

solid gold souvenir tag embossed with the logos of the two companies hanging from the laces which have a glitz dipped in diamonds the upper of the sneaker bares a blue white and gold Daisy pattern studded with chips of diamonds and sapphires set in 18-karat white gold number one Air Yeezy to Red October sold for 17 million dollars this is it by long and away the most expensive sneakers in the world are the air easy-to-read October the story goes that when Kanye West was promoting his latest record he wanted the perfect pair of sneakers thus the Air Yeezy 2 red Octobers were developed with Nike and as you might expect when the shoes were released they   sold out almost immediately however one historic pair did find their way onto eBay in the sell-out aftermath and in record-breaking fashion the bidding war escalated to a final price of 17 million dollars due to the nature of eBay there’s no way to confirm whether whoever bid the gargantuan amount for the sneakers actually came through with the cash but nevertheless officially that pair of Air Yeezy 2 red Octobers go down in history as the most expensive sneakers ever so there you have it ten of the most expensive sneakers
