A remarkable piece of Apple’s history is now available for enthusiasts and collectors alike, as Sotheby’s puts an ultra-rare pair of official Apple-branded sneakers up for auction at an eye-popping price of $50,000.
Known as the Omega Sports Apple Computer Sneakers, these unique shoes boast a white leather upper adorned with iconic rainbow Apple logos on the tongue and lateral quarter. An air cushioning window in the heel adds to their vintage charm. The sneakers are in men’s U.S. size 10.5 and come with an additional pair of red laces.
What makes these sneakers truly exceptional is their origin and exclusivity. They were custom-made for Apple employees during the 1990s and were given away as a one-time gift at a National Sales Conference. Unlike other Apple-branded merchandise from “The Apple Collection,” these sneakers have never been made available for public purchase, making them a true gem of Apple memorabilia.
Sotheby’s describes this pair as “one of the most obscure in existence” and highly sought-after among collectors. The sneakers symbolize a bygone era of Apple’s history when the company briefly offered branded clothing and accessories, featuring the iconic rainbow logo and Macintosh computer imagery.
While listed as “new in the box,” due to their age, slight imperfections such as yellowing around the midsoles, glue marks, and light wear on the toe boxes can be found, adding to their authenticity and historical significance.
This auction represents a rare opportunity for Apple enthusiasts and sneaker collectors to own a piece of tech and fashion history. Don’t miss the chance to own these exceptional Apple sneakers, a true collector’s item that encapsulates the spirit of a revolutionary era.
