Hello, and welcome back to another article on Fantasyprospects! Today we are going to be covering a whole new aspect of sports. Shoes! The article below was inspired by a recent interview with Josh Luber, Co-Founder, and former CEO of Stockx, that I conducted on my podcast called Avner’s Sports Throw Down!

For many years now NBA, NFL, and MLB players have loved to wear the most trendy and fashionable accessories whether it comes to shoes, suits, watches, cars, and more. Today we are going to be covering the top three most expensive shoes associated with each major NBA star. (We will be covering modern-day versions of the shoes)
While I could have used several different sources to collect the data I am using Stockx!
We are first going to start with an obvious one and a shoe brand that is worldwide known. The Jordan shoe brand.
1) Jordan 1 Retro High Shinedown Attention $40,000 – 50,000
2) Jordan 4 Retro Eminem Encore $34,000 – 42,000
3) Jordan 4 Retro Travis Scott (Friends and Family Edition) $30,000 – 37,000
My, second shoe brand that I am going to introduce is the Kobe shoe brand!
1) Jordan Kobe PE Pack 3/8 $50,000 – $80,000
2) Nike Kobe 1 Protro Undefeated Purple (F&F) $20,000 – $28,000
3) Nike Kobe 4 Protro Undefeated Olive $18,000 – $24,500
My, third choice is the elite Lebron shoe brand!
1) Nike LeBron 4 Fruity Pebbles $ 6,000 – 10,000
2) Nike LeBron X What the MVP $3,000 – $6,000
3) Nike LeBron 15 Lifestyle KITH King’s Crown $2,000 – $4,500
Now, that you have seen all of these shoes and their prices you are probably wondering what makes shoes so expensive, popular, and sought after?
Since you asked I will tell you. Shoes are so sought after because the most famous fashion designers and companies produce it and they pay millions of dollars every year to advertise them. They are so expensive because companies and fashion designers only make a limited amount of them, so therefore the price goes up because there are less in circulation. They are very popular because very huge and popular public figures wear them and when they wear something and promote it themselves it instantly becomes very popular. The whole cycle will repeat itself until the next trend comes around.
