Kanye West’s signature is worth nearly $100,000, especially on a pair of Air Yeezy 2 sneakers as they sold for a couple thousand dollars shy in a recent Hurricane Sandy benefit auction.
According to reports, Ye’s Air Yeezy 2 kicks and other special celebrity goodies were auctioned off to help raise money for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
As it was previously announced, Re/Create and a number of celebrities aimed to help with the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy by auctioning off a number of personal items. Amongst the celebrities and items put up for auction were Julianne Moore’s special effects breast-plate from the forthcoming remake of Carrie, a vintage Miu Miu dress from Les Misérables star Anne Hathaway’s wardrobe, a Marc Jacobs Mini Stam Bag, signed Kate Moss book, a bottle of RC Reserve Syrah from Roman Coppola, and a signed pair of Kanye West’s Air Yeezy II. It can now be confirmed that the winning bid for the aforementioned sneakers from the always-buzzed-about artist fetched a whopping $98,900 USD via eBay. It seems that “watching the throne” isn’t nearly as enjoyable as owning a piece for some individuals. (Hype Beast)
