Kanye West’s “Yeezy” Named the Most Valuable Sneakers in History

Rapper Kanye West may not be at the best place in his life right now but he still has some major wins that deserve to be celebrated in life.

The rapper’s sneakers line “Yeezy” sneakers have been named the most valuable sneakers in history.

The Shaderoom reports that the 2008 Nike Air Yeezy which Kanye wore for the 2008 Grammys, went on sale for over $1 million at Sotheby’s, making it the highest-priced sneaker ever to go on sale in the history of global sneaker sales. Kanye rocked the sneakers during his performance of hit singles “Hey Mama” and “Stronger.”

The Yeezy brand of sneakers brought in roughly $1.7 billion in sales in 2020 as reported by Forbes.

Kanye Omari West is an American rapper, record producer, fashion designer, and politician.

He has been influential in the 21st-century development of mainstream hip hop and popular music in general.

Low numbers of limited editions have kept the demand high and when the supplies ran out, you could find Yeezys offered for sale by those who had the insight to stockpile new pairs for later sale at a much higher price. This caused the price to soar even higher when they were hard to acquire.

The cheapest Yeezy sneakers are the Yeezy 500 or Yeezy 700 v3, which retail for $200 each.
