Now, London-based resale store Proxyeed has confirmed that it sold a pair for “around £ 100,000” or around $ 133,000 USD. Paired with a few other shoes, the mystery shopper’s total bill was £ 112,300 (or exactly $ 150,000 USD). In short, this Nike SB Dunk Low “Paris” is believed to be, according to Proxyeed owner Ryan Thomas Symes, “the most expensive private sale of footwear in the world, with the exception of Jordans worn by the game or signed shoes “.
Symes explained exclusively to HYPEBEAST how the deal went. “We were negotiating with the customer on the shoe. He wanted to pay one price, we wanted him to pay another. We were far enough away, so we decided to use rock, paper, scissors for that. We won the stone, the paper, the scissors, so he paid.
The sale not only shows that the Nike SB Dunk wave is alive and well, but that the resale industry is also as widespread and lucrative as ever. Proxyeed has a wide range of sneakers, from everyone’s favorite YEEZYs to pairs of flogs for 99p on Saturdays. Take a look at his Instagram post above for more information on the sale.
