Summertime Sneakers from the Sotheby’s Auction House

Kick-start 2021’s hotly-anticipated summer season with highly collectible, sneakerhead-approved pairs from Sotheby’s Auction House! Collection worthy sneakers are available for immediate purchase at Sotheby’s including Nike Dunks and Nike Air Force models.

Though sneakers have been sold as collectibles since 1985, their appearance at auction in sales held by major houses is a relatively new phenomenon. Over the past few years, houses such as Christie’s and Sotheby’s have found momentum by peddling sneakers to buyers as a major collecting category in their own right. “Sneakers is a category now and it’s going to grow,” Noah Wunsch, formerly of Sotheby’s, told ARTnews in 2019.
