Apple Co-Founder Steve Jobs' Worn Birkenstock Arizonas Just Sold for $218k
A pair of Birkenstock Arizona sandals worn by late Apple founder Steve Jobs just sold at auction for $218,750.
Listed by Julien's Auctions, the Arizonas are described as being owned and worn by Jobs during the 70s and 80s. More specifically, the item description notes that Jobs 'hatched the beginnings of Apple computer in a Los Altos garage with Apple’s co-founder Steve Wozniak while occasionally wearing these sandals.'
This obsession with product is a quality that Jobs is well-known for, and in addition to these Birkenstocks, Jobs' style legacy is also underpinned by his love for New Balance sneakers and Issey Miyake turtleneck sweaters, garments which he frequently donned during Apple's famous keynote presentations.
Jobs' former partner Lisa Brennan described his affinity for the Arizona in further detail, noting 'The sandals were part of his simple side. They were his uniform. The great thing about a uniform is that you don't have to worry about what to wear in the morning.'
The auction exhibition also includes an image of Jobs wearing the Arizonas in question, just in case there were any doubts about whether or not these sandals were actually worn by the famous entrepreneur.
