Kanye West Sells The Most Expensive Shoes Ever!

Kanye West sold a pair of shoes he wore during his performance at the 2008 Grammys for $ 1.8 Million.

The prototype Nike Air Yeezy's sold in a recent private sale, brokered by Sotheby's.

Kanye wore the Nikes, at the 2008 Grammy Awards, when he performed "Hey Mama" and "Stronger."

The $1.8 million shattered the record for the most expensive pair of sneakers ever sold, nearly tripling the previous high of $615k a pair of 1985 Nike Air Jordan 1s Michael Jordan wore when he broke a backboard during a preseason game in Italy.

Kanye and Mark Smith designed the size 12 shoes, a combination of Nike and Yeezy signature brandings. The buyer is RARES, a sneaker investment marketplace so, there are chances the shoes will sell again.

Jay-Z and Kanye's "N***as In Paris," has also been officially made eligible for octuple platinum status.

It has sold over eight million units and at this rate, Jay-Z and Kanye West are on their way to a diamond plaque, marking the first time either achieved the sales milestone.
