Sotheby’s and English Sole Auctioning Off Rare Nikes and Jordans for 'Scarce Air'
Sotheby’s have linked up with Chicago sneaker store English Sole to curate a special 50-piece auction. Dubbed ‘Scarce Air’, the collaborative auction brings together rare sneakers from Nike, Jordan Brand, and Kanye West.
There’s plenty of sought-after Grails among the lineup, but the mismatched Nike Air Yeezy 2s and the Air Force 1s are definitely a highlight. The former is signed by Kanye West, while the latter was made in collaboration with hit TV series Entourage, UNDEFEATED, and Fukijama Gold.
Additionally, there’s golden Air Jordan 9s, Air Jordan 11s and Air Jordan 3s, which were all created for R&B star Usher, while Eminem’s famed Air Jordan 4 ‘Encore’ packaged with a signed Marshall Mathers Shady Records card also makes the auction. Last but not least, Eminem x Carhartt x Air Jordan 4s and the Colette x Air Jordan 1 round out the Jumpman assortment.
Both parties are hoping the auction will bring in excess of $800,000. If you’re interested, be sure to place your bids here. Bidding closes on March 29.
