‘Fukijama Gold’ Nike Air Force 1s Sell for $113,400 at Sotheby’s ‘Entourage’ Auction

,

Bidding has ended on Sotheby’s ‘The Entourage Collection’ auction, which included a comprehensive selection of exclusive Nike collaborations celebrating the TV show Entourage. Considered by collectors to be among the rarest Swooshes of all time, memorabilia mavens went big, netting at least $140,000 in total for the product. There was always going to be one obvious standout in the seven sneaker lots: a pair of ‘Fukijama Gold’ Air Force 1s, which closed at a whopping $113,400.

This golden lasered AF-1 was expressly made for select cast members of Entourage back in 2006, and was a plot device for an episode of the show. With only nine pairs in existence, it’s no surprise that the last time a pair was on the market, it sold for $88,200. What punters didn’t expect this time around was that this next pair would not only eclipse this figure – which was a benchmark for the $60,000 to $90,000 estimate – but would actually break the six-digit figure to sell for $113,400!

The next most expensive pairs were the Air Force 1 ‘Premium Georges’ and a Friends and Family edition of the Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Lights Out’ signed by the cast, which went for $12,600 each – a relative bargain at 11 per cent of the cost of the ‘Fukijama’. There was also a pair of F&F SB Dunk samples and another example of AF-1 ‘Premium Georges’ that sold without the price made public, but it’s unlikely they were anywhere near the star of the show.
