When playing basketball, one of the things a player needs to wear is a shoe. Yes, the shoes clearly have the function to be able to protect the soles of the feet while playing. Will, as the times progressed, the use of shoes also changed. If previous basketball shoes are only considered as game equipment, now the goods can be a lifestyle commodity whose price can reach exorbitant.
The game of basketball has now become a sport that much in demand by the Indonesian people let alone the youths who want to look more cool because many girls today are many who like basketball players who have athletic and lanky body. But I am now not talking about basketball games, but 10 Most Expensive Basketball Shoes. Here are the basketball shoes that have the most expensive selling price in the world.
Nike Air Force 1
Hearing the name of this shoe definitely reminds you of the plane carrying the President of United States of America, that is Air Force One. At first the world’s shoe company Nike has been producing these shoes for a sale price of $ 100. But in January 2005, the shoe was released with Black and Metallic edition, with limited sales of 523 pairs. And the price of this edition boots also jumped up to $ 2500 per pair.
Nike Air Force 1 Fourmen
Perhaps you have not heard of this one because it is only in production for ESPN party subscriptions, the shoe has been launched in June 2004. LeBron James is one of the owners of 12 pairs of shoes that have been made solely for guests- Guests and special invites. The selling price of this shoe is $ 2500 per pair.
Air Jordan XI
The original Air Jordan XI transparent shoe was originally launched in June 1995, which was inspired by the creation of his famous basketball movie Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes crew in Space Jam. Shoes that have the label “Space Jams” are white, black, and blue only in the production of 7 pairs. And the scarcity of these shoes makes its market price soar above $ 2700, as Nike has set.
Adidas Golden KB8 Selection
Shoes known as Crazy 8, which in Adidas change from the title of KB8, Kobe Bryant can be recalled using these shoes as his first Adidas shoes in the NBA. Launched in February 1998, Kobe wore these shoes as a trial product, but this did not make it run smoothly as an experiment, which has made Crazy 8’s shoe sales amazingly successful. If this shoe is still sold in the market, it will probably break the $ 3,000 per pair.
Air Jordan III
Perhaps one of Jordan’s most revolutionary sneakers is Air Jordan III because it is a shoe that uses the “Nike Air” logo, which is soon replaced with the “Jumpman” logo, -word “Water” underneath. Michael Jordan considers this shoe as his favorite, though he used these shoes at the Dunk Championship in 1998, the same year when the shoe was in production for the first time. Shoes that have white variations were on sale before the start of the NBA Playoffs that year, and only 1000 pairs of these shoes have been sold, so each has a $ 4500 price tag.
Air Jordan VI
The red-and-black variations of Air Jordan VI shoes have been seen publicly and on TV when Jordan used them when he played in 1992 at the Olympic Games in Barcelona, Spain, as a USA basketball team player. It was previously launched in February 1991 and was only sold for 1500 pairs, with an authentic version that has a price of over $ 7200.
Air Jordan I
There is not much information about the first few pairs of Air Jordan I, only with the fact that Tinker Hatfield is the person responsible for the design and creation of the beginning of the history of basketball shoes, choosing Michael Jordan as the helm. The variant is different, although it has a red and white color, using a metallic white element on a strong base. The market price of these 1200 pairs of shoes was $ 8,000 based on authenticity, authenticity, and style, seeing them in production in March 1985.
Air Jordan V
This one may be dubbed as one of the most unique versions of its generation. Air Jordan V is introduced with some features that have never existed in previous generations, such as reflective footprint, transparent soles, and comfortable shoe strap. In February 1990, there were a pair of these shoe that Jordan used during his playing game, with a rare black and silver design with a number 23 on the back that was not sold in any store. Based on the fans, these shoes have a price of $ 10,000 if these are purchased and made for some other colors.
Nike Air Mag
Some people might think of Nike Air Mag just as a display used on Back to the Future 2, when Marty McFly heads to 2015 and visits that year. After all, Nike has produced these shoes in February 1989, and is only kind enough to produce 20 pairs of this very beautiful artificial one that can only be used for this basketball game. However, do not expect to have a fastener and a rope that works automatically. Because based on the market price of these rare shoes, can reach $ 12,000, without including a jacket but signed by Michael J. Fox, the same year when the film was in theaters.
The skyrocketing price of the shoe is inseparable from the way that basketball apparels like Air Jordan restrict the amount of production. Some of these shoes are also designed with a slick and made of quality materials. It certainly makes a lot of people who are fond of collecting shoes willing to spend a lot of money and queue long to get the shoes.
