Excellent result for the first Sneakers auction in Italy with 60% of the lots sold.
The undisputed protagonists of the auction are two pairs of Air Force 1 Low Off-White, (the MCA – sold for 4.000 € – and the Air University Gold Metallic Silver – sold for 2.500 €) and also the Blazer Mid Off-White “The Ten” (sold for2.000 €), confirmation of the fact that with the collaboration between Off-White and Nike, Virgil Abloh has definitively revolutionized the world of sneakers, succeeding in making them more and more a cult object – especially after his recent death.
Other models that have achieved excellent results at auction are those signed by hip hop superstar Travis Scott: the Air Force 1 Low Travis Scott AF100 (sold for 2.300 €) and the Dunk SB Low (sold for more than 2.000 €). Also worth mentioning the Dunk SB Low Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Dunky, designed in collaboration with the famous American ice cream manufacturer, sold for 2.400 €, the Dunk SB Low StrangeLove Skateboards sold for 1.700 € and the Air Max 1/97 Sean Wotherspoon sold for 1.800 €.
Interestingly, 60% of the lots were awarded to foreign customers (with the United States, England and China in the lead) confirming the fact that the collecting market, even in the world of sneakers, is now increasingly digital and international.
