Pete Carroll’s Air Monarch IVs are the very definition of ‘dad shoes’. Stephen Curry took a lot of roasting on Twitter when he released his Chef Curry dad shoes, and I’m guessing the only reason that Pete Carroll doesn’t endure the same level of roasting is that he fits the profile of a man who should be wearing dad shoes.
Pete’s Nike Air Monarch IVs are well known in the hypebeast world, as well as to Seattle Seahawks fans. There are have been multiple articles about Pete Carroll’s Nike Air Monarch IVs in the past year or so.
There’s now a lot of renewed interest in Pete’s custom Air Monarch IVs because a pair has hit eBay and they’re selling for $3,500. The Nike Monarchs are the original ‘dad shoe’, later supplanted by some New Balance kicks, but these custom Monarchs for Pete Carroll are as unique as shoes come and that has driven up the price on eBay according to BarDown.
Here’s what the description of the shoes on eBay has to say:
For sale is a Brand New pair of Nike Air Monarch IV Pete Carroll PE Promo Sample shoes in men’s US size 12!
These shoes are RIDICULOUSLY RARE. Very few people got their hands on them besides Pete Carroll coach of the NFL Seattle Seahawks himself.
There were many high-profile articles written about these by websites such as HypeBeast, SneakerNews, SoleCollector, KicksOnFire, and Mashable. Google it.
If you want to stunt on people with the crispiest pair of Monarchs in the world or if you are possibly in search of a special gift for your sneaker-head grandfather, you need this pair of shoes. Don’t miss what will probably be your only chance to own these.
Are these shoes hideous? Yes. Are they worth $3,500? Maybe, if the money is going towards charity but there’s no mention of anything like that on the eBay listing.
Now, if you’re an eccentric billionaire who has no problem dropping $3,500 on dad shoes then you can find the eBay listing HERE and get your bid in before the auction ends in 21 days.
