A pair of rare classic Apple shoes sold for over $ 16,000 at auction this week, GQ reported.
Apple launched a fashion line in 1986, but these kicks were made a prototype for Apple employees in the early 1990s and never sold to the general public, making them more sought after today. Another pair is getting nearly $ 30,000 at the 2017 auction, highlighting how much nostalgia these casual kicks can bring.
The value of classic Apple hardware and souvenirs has grown in recent years, with a few more examples showing how much people are willing to pay for anything and everything from Apple’s earlier years.
The original Apple Computer Inc. inscription, created around 1978 with Apple’s well-known rainbow logo, is expected to be auctioned this week. The sign will be auctioned on March 26 and will start at $ 20,000. Last month, a rare, fully functional Apple-1 computer was auctioned for $ 458,711.
In 2017, Steve Jobs owned items auctioned, including a 1984 Seiko watch (sold for $ 42,500), an old Birkenstock sandal ($ 2,750), and one of the classic black tortoise leather that was in NeXT. ($ 7,500). Another item included a NeXT name tag, a business card, a 10K gold Apple Computers pen, and a personally signed USPS confirmation, each sold for $ 16,250.
