From Drake to Travis Scott, celebrities have long collaborated with established sneaker brands over the years to create some of pop culture’s most coveted items. For many celebs, their sneaker lines often appreciate in value years after they hit the market.
While there have been many celebrity sneaker lines that have come and gone , eBay recently put together a seed list of 200 iconic collaborations to determine which have been the most expensive over the years.
Michael Jordan’s work with the Nike Air Jordan 1 carried the shoe to first place, with the highest winning bid on eBay being $10,000 for a single pair. The Nike Air Jordan 11, 4 and 12’s also appeared throughout the list, the highest bid for each being around $6,160, $9,999 and $1,600, respectfully.
While Michael Jordan reigns supreme, Kanye West’s adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 came in second place, with the highest bid for a pair being $9,000. Pharrell’s HU NMD’s and Rihanna’s PUMA Fenty Suede Creeper’s appeared further down list as well, with the highest bids being for $4,999 and $999, respectfully.
There is no denying the sneaker game can be quite lucrative for celebrities, and Soulja Boy announced on Tuesday (February 8) he’s getting in on the shoe business as well.
Dubbed the Soulja Stars, the sneakers come in three different colors: white, black and yellow, and green. Each pair includes a packaged “collector’s edition” box and retails for $279.
The Soulja Stars are in collaboration with Alive Shoes, an Italian footwear company that allows people to apply for the opportunity to create their own footwear. According to the website, the sneaker is crafted and even shipped straight from Italy.
“Soulja Boy is the designer of this shoe concept,” the site reads. “Soulja Stars is a unique limited edition shoe concept; you will not find this custom design anywhere else! The shoes are handcrafted in Italy. Once you buy a pair, the custom shoes are manufactured and shipped to you.”
