Top 15 Most Expensive Shoes Ever Purchased by AsapGist: 12:58pm On Nov 30, 2015


Welcome to another edition of “the most ridiculous things people have done with money”. For those with practical tastes and priorities, shoes are just things that one wears on their feet to avoid foot injury while walking around. But what kind of luxury and wealth publication would we be if we focused on those people, right?

But for the purposes of entertainment, opulence, frivolity and lavish spending often make for more entertaining subject matter than careful spending and calculated decisions. For those who are into chucking buckets of money around, there is always opportunity to spend on things that are normally affordable. Have a Honda Civic but have a barn-full of money and want something that goes through a tank of gas in half an hour? Every luxury car company out there has something that will satisfy your needs. If one is a watch fanatic, from Rolex to Patek Philippe, there are options available from $10,000 to hundreds of thousands. Moving back to my original point, while plenty of shoe companies can offer footwear that will last a year or two for around $100, some see awesome shoes as an important fashion statement. So important in fact that they are willing to drop several hundreds or even thousands of dollars on their footwear. For your entertainment and spending pleasure, here are the most expensive sneakers on which people have dropped obscene amounts of money.

15. Nike Paranorman Foamposite – $3,000



Back in 2012, to accompany the animated horror movie ParaNorman, Nike produced a set of extremely rare sneakers. Just eight hundred pairs of these were made and all featured a graphics based on the film along with glow in the dark soles and tabs on the back that say “weird” and “wins” on the left and right respectively. The only way to get a pair was to follow the movie’s Twitter account and Tweet a picture of yourself “as a weird kid” with the hashtags: “#weirdwins ParaNorman Foamposites”. They can only be found on eBay and other similar sites these days and generally go for around $3,000.

14. Nike Dunk Paris Edition – $3,000 – $3,500



Made back in 2003, the Paris Edition only saw a little over 200 pairs of the shoes ever actually produced. Each pair was unique and they were inspired by the work of French painter Bernard Buffet. A pair were once put on eBay for the price of $15,000 but it is unclear whether anyone paid that much. Rather, they usually sell for around $3,000 when they trade hands, and it has been suggested that the price can reach three and a half grand. Either way, a very rare set with an interesting story if you can find them.

13. Air Jordan Retro II “The Way I Am” – $3,500



Slim Shady is known to be a fan of Nike shoes, and has a special place in his heart for the Air Jordan II. He always said that growing up they were his favorite pair of shoes and in 2008, he collaborated to make “The Way I Am”, which featured his lyrics on the ankle, front and sides of the shoe. For his hometown, only 313 pairs of these shoes were made. Why is that number significant? It is the area code in Detroit. Not nearly as rare as some shoes on this list, a pair of these is still considered valuable and usually go for about $3,500.

These shoes are too expensive. Only millionaires can afford them. And I doubt that they are comfy. The most expensive boots that I have is palladium leather boots. They costed me about 150$ but it worth it. The quality is awesome.
