Check the news Sotheby’s auctions off a one-of-a-kind pair of adidas sneakers with a price tag of up to $1 million and more on Switzerland based Luxury Lifestyle Magazine- Kenleaks Magazine.
The adidas Originals ZX8000 model was used as a starting point; the sneakers weigh 950 kilos and are a size 9. The sneakers are on sale at Sotheby’s online auction until December 16 with an estimated value of $ 1-1,000,000; the current bid at the time of writing is $ 1,200.
This is a charity auction, and all revenues from the sale of sneakers will go to the Brooklyn Museum.
