Sorting the most expensive drops into a top four for 2019, eBay revealed that the most anyone has paid for a single pair of sneakers in 2019 was $10,000.

And before you roll your eyes and say: “People will do anything for Yeezys”, they weren’t made by adidas. Nor were they Off-White Nikes. Or Jordans.

In fact, someone parted with $10,000 for a pair of Nike Zoom Vapor Roger Federer tennis shoes. eBay didn’t provide any further details on the specifics of the pair but we have to assume, as they currently retail for $125 in stores, that this was a pair worn by the man himself. Presumably while winning Wimbledon.

The humble Zoom Vapor even beat the hallowed, self-lacing Nike Air Mags, Marty McFly’s futuristic sneakers featured in Back To The Future II. They sold for $9000, beating out competition from a Nike Sb Dunk Low “Freddy Kreuger” ($8,000) and Original, 1985 OG Nike Air Jordan 1 Chicago, White, Black Red Bred 4280 ($7,500).

When it comes to resale, Nike clearly still holds the crown.
