There’s apparently no limit to what people pay for some of the darker Apple devices, and these sneakers prove it.

The shoes are nine and a half tall and have the classic six-color Apple logo. They were distributed to Apple employees in the early 1990s, making them an extremely rare find.
The worn-out shoe, which is in fairly good condition with light surface pollution, was able to shoot down $ 9,687. They had a total of 20 offers.
The shoes were sold at the Heritage Auction House. The auction house recorded them as part of an “Urban Art” block.
It is also not the first time that a hard-to-find Apple product has been successfully auctioned off. A rare Apple 1 machine was recently auctioned for $ 458,711.
Various marketing materials and other memorabilia can also lead to high prices for the auction block, for example an original Apple 1 manual that was sold in 2019 for $ 12,296.
