Sneakerheads will pay absurd amounts of money for shoes, as this graphic of the most valuable sneakers of 2015 proves, but there’s something interesting about the type of shoes that are the most sought after.
Besides the fact that Kanye’s Yeezy line dominates the top twenty, most of the shoes are fashion more than function. In other words, sneakers are ultimately shoes for athletic endeavors and now it’s more about the style on the street than the flash on the court. I feel like before there was at least a little of both. These year-end lists are usually dominated by Jordans (a name still prevalent throughout the rest of the list) but there’s no denying Yeezy is making his name in the shoe game.
No wonder Yeezy is considering testing the free agent waters.
