For many years, sportswear has been considered the most comfortable and affordable. But still there is a category of rich people who once again want to emphasize this fact even with the help of this type of clothing. Given this fact, manufacturers of sportswear decided to create limited series of their goods, making various collaborations with world-famous fashion houses, star people, etc. Thus, annually released premium class products that are available only to those who have, and who are willing to lay out huge amounts of money.
Sportswear generally consists of various components, including sneakers. Today, such shoes can be worn not only under sweatpants or shorts, but also combined with evening dresses, skirts, jeans. Therefore, the wardrobe of each dude contains at least one pair of fashionable sneakers. Perhaps you once thought about how much the most expensive sneakers in the world cost. And we decided to bring to your attention the ten most expensive pairs of sports shoes. Well, let’s get started!
10 PLACE – NIKE PARANORMAN FOAMPOSITE WHICH PRICE IS ABOUT 4 THOUSAND DOLLARS
This model of sneakers opens our parade of the most expensive sneakers in the world. Nike ParaNorman Foamposite is a limited edition of the famous model, which first appeared in public in 1997, as special sneakers made for the NBA basketball player Penny Hardaway. Looking at these shoes, you can see that the manufacturers definitely succeeded in defeating the topic with paranormal phenomena. In the dark, the phosphorus sole glows in different colors, and ParaNorman looks like something fantastic and right from the horror movie. If someone manages to purchase this model of sneakers for less than four thousand dollars, this person can be safely called lucky.
9 PLACE – RICK OWENS GEOBASKET IGUANA (PRICE AROUND 4,000 DOLLARS)
Ninth place on our list of the most expensive sneakers is given to the creation of the American fashion designer Rick Owens.

His sneakers are made with iguana leather, which looks amazing.

8 PLACE – ADIDAS NMD R1 “FRIENDS AND FAMILY” (PRICE AROUND 4,000 DOLLARS)
The eighth place was given to the world-famous Adidas sportswear company and their NMD R1 Friends and Family sneaker. When the company released the NMD line, they increasingly began to make limited series, and the price of such a product can be astronomical. This model costs about $ 4,000 and is a knitted and seamless cover with a Boost sole. Shoes are comfortable, high-quality, but many believe that this price is too high, but despite this, this model has taken its place of honor in our top ten most expensive sneakers in the world.
7 PLACE – PHARRELL WILLIAMS X ADIDAS HU NMD “FRIENDS AND FAMILY” PRICE WHICH ARE APPROXIMATELY 6 000 DOLLARS
This model of sneakers turned out as the fruit of cooperation between a famous musician including fashionista Forrell Williams and the world-famous sportswear company Adidas. The world was presented with comfortable sneakers with a Boost sole and design decoration from the most stylish person on the planet, and for this masterpiece you need to pay about 6 thousand dollars.
6 PLACE – VLONE X NIKE AIR FORCE 1 HIGH PRICE AROUND 8,000 USD
This model is also the result of a collaboration, but between the youth firm VLONE and the famous sportswear brand NIKE. You may be interested to know that VLONE was created by a member of the ASAP Mob musical group – ASAP Bari. This company represents a whole lifestyle of a person that is incomprehensible to society. And if you turn the first letter in the name of the company, you can get the word ALONE, which means “lonely” in translation.
Due to the scandal surrounding the main person of VLONE, the cooperation between the corporations was terminated. To date, VLONE x Nike Air Force 1 High sneakers are very difficult to find, and those who collect shoes less than $ 8,000 per buyer will not take for them.
5 PLACE – DJ KHALED X AIR JORDAN 3 “GRATEFUL” (ABOUT $ 15,000)
The fifth place in our parade is occupied by a model which at its price is already significantly different from previous models, and this place is given to the joint work between Nike and DJ Khalid. DJ Khaled has long been famous for a large number of products that appeal to buyers and lovers of this type of clothing. This model of the third Jordans, which were released in a limited edition, turned out to be incredible, but quite expensive.

This model belongs to the most expensive basketball shoes in the world, which were created recently. They will have to pay more than two tens of thousands of dollars. It turns out interesting that the track “Thrift Shop”, which belongs to this artist, promotes a careful attitude to money while shopping, and also calls for educating people in their own taste for clothes, rather than becoming attached to fashion trends. Well, Maclemore, apparently more than $ 20,000 for sneakers, is a respect for money, and we just don’t understand everything.
