Apple is great at keeping with the times, and in the ‘90s it was all about wearing colorful clothes and sporting the coolest, cleanest sneakers.
From the mid-‘80s to the early-‘90s, the Cupertino-giant sold a fresh pair of bright white sneakers emblazoned with the colorful retro Apple logo exclusively to their employees. If you happen to own them, now is a great time to dig them out.
Heritage Auctions is planning to sell a pair of the sneakers on eBay Sunday at a starting price of $15,000. This particular pair of size 9 ½ shoes was produced in the early ‘90s, and is expected to sell for more than $30,000. While the condition of the sneakers isn’t specified, their rarity is sure to help them fetch a high price.
We’ll have to wait and see whether a battle between hipsters, Apple fanatics, and rare sneaker collectors will cause the price to soar beyond that of a jacket worn by the late Steve Jobs.
Regardless of the exact number, one Apple employee is on their way to being rewarded for their visionary style with an unexpected retirement bonus.
