Air Yeezys to fetch 1 Million at Auction.
Valued at more than a record-breaking $1 million, the Nike Air Yeezy 1 prototype worn by rapper Kanye West at the 50th Grammy Awards is on sale this month at Sotheby's auction house.
"The Air Yeezy was an entirely new silhouette — created for an artist rather than an athlete, and paved the way for many of the artist collaborations of today," Sotheby's said in a press release for the auction. A company representative noted that the pair on sale was created exclusively for West.
The shoes are available for purchase via a private sale, in which prospective buyers submit their offers to the auction house. They'll also be on display at an exhibition in Hong Kong from Friday until April 21.
