How much would you pair for a limited edition pair of Apple sneakers? In fact, it’s not just any Apple sneakers. It’s a pair of white lace-ups stamped with the original Apple logo that takes us back to the days before Apple became cool.
And now that Apple is unquestionably cool, this pair of shoes, exclusively designed for employees of the computer firm in the early ’90s, looks set to fetch tens of thousands of dollars.
Bidding starts at US$15,000 ($20,700) , but the event’s organiser, Heritage Auctions, estimates the value of the pristine pair of US size 9 1/2 at US$30,000 ($41,400). The current bid price is US$18,750 ($25,900).
