Arjun Kapoor’s high top sneakers cost more than a Royal Enfield
When it comes to sneakers, the Air Jordan Travis Scott ranks quite high. The Nike collaboration celebrates the hip-hop artist with these limited edition shoes dropped in 2019. Officially, the sneakers are called Air Jordan 1 High OG x Travis Scott and sell for $ 175. However, being limited edition sneakers, they flew off the shelves before they even reached the shelf. As a result, these are now available at a significant markup.
The only ones available right now are those sold by sneaker markets for limited edition, high demand sneakers. On StockX, the most trusted marketplace for everything from Jordans and Yeezys to trading cards and designer handbags, the kicks sell for between $ 1,495 and $ 3,046 depending on what size you’re looking for. This works out to around Rs 1.11 lakh to Rs 2.26 lakh and that would not include taxes.
It’s impossible to say where exactly Arjun Kapoor bought them from or how much they may have cost him, but it’s safe to say they weren’t bought for $ 175. Arjun Kapoor, like several Bollywood actors of his generation, is a sneakerhead and is often spotted in some of the hottest sneakers. Typically, most sneaker enthusiasts – or at least those who can afford it – have a broker who buys sneakers when they drop them off and sell them to them for a markup.
Limited edition sneakers also trade like stocks. If you can’t afford some of the more expensive ones, like the Nike Air Yeezy 1 by Kanye West prototype which recently went for a Rs 13 crore – you can even buy stock in sneakers like you would buy stock in a publicly traded company. This makes you one of the many owners of the pair, just as buying stocks makes you one of the many owners of a business.
However, if Arjun Kapoor tries to resell the pair he is pictured wearing, chances are he won’t get a very high price since he has clearly seen them wearing them. The price of limited edition sneakers drops dramatically when used, even for a few hours.
