We know that shoes are everything to a sneakerhead. Maybe your shoe cabinet is out of space but you still want to fill your collection with more pairs, right? According to our survey, Yeezy and Jordan are often the most coveted shoes in this world. But, do you know exactly what are the rarest sneakers?
If nothing has come to your mind yet, why don’t you check out these shoes below? This a list of the world’s rarest sneakers we’ve rounded up for you.
Air Jordan 1
It is not a coincidence that the Air Jordan 1 is the first pair we want to show you on this list. It is well-known as one of the most iconic shoes that have changed the world of sneakers.
Michael Jordan is the one who made these shoes more popular than ever after he wore them on the court in 1985.
The Air Jordan 1 was once the dream of many generations, especially boys who loved sports around the world. They called it the ”holy grail”. Now, the resale price of the shoes can be up to $500.000.
Nike Air Yeezy 1 ‘Grammy’
The Air Yeezy was the result of the partnership between Nike and the famous rapper Kanye West from 2007 to 2014. However, the Nike Air Yeezy 1 ‘Grammy’ was particularly made for West.
He donned it at the Grammy Awards in 2008 and the shoes were a kick at that time. After that, it was never actually brought into production. That is why this is also one of the rarest shoes in sneaker history.
Not only the Nike Air Yeezy 1 ‘Grammy’ but It is also really difficult to see a Nike Air Yeezy 1 and 2 now because Nike no longer manufactured this shoe line anymore.
Back to the Future II’ Nike Mags
If you know the movie Back to the Future Part II, you will definitely recognize these amazing shoes. The main character in the 1989 film – Marty McFly wore it when he time-traveled to 2015.
Nike made film fans crazy when releasing several limited editions of the sneaker in 2011 and on October 21, 2015 – the same day in the movie. Then, they even launched a self-lacing version of the MAG sneakers in 2016. The price of Nike Mag 2016 is approximate $40,000 now.
Nike Air Jordan 4 Eminem X Carhartt
In 2015, Nike continued to collaborate with one of the greatest rappers of all time – Eminem. These shoes were made to commemorate the 15th anniversary of Eminem’s Shady Records label.
As you can see, it was a retro version of the Nike Air Jordan 4. The full name of the sneaker was the Air Jordan 4 Eminem x Carhartt “Friends & Family”. It was created from high-quality Carhartt canvas and gifted to the rapper’s friends and family.
Nike craft mars yard TS NASA 2.0
Another cooperation of Nike and influential – artist Tom Sachs was the Mars Yard 2.0. It was inspired by Sachs’ interactions with NASA’s scientists.
They wanted to use the shoes as a part of the Mars exhibition. The shoe is the result of continuous adjustments and experiments in 5 years.
Tom Sachs expressed his thought about the sneaker: “People wear their scars with pride, so that’s another reason why we don’t polish the materials away — it’s storytelling.”
