25 Most Expensive Sneakers Ever Made

The average Joe uses shoes just to get from one to place to the other in relative comfort. However, the more sports-minded have other goals in mind.

The highest-paid athletes probably have hundreds of shoes for the sport they play and for the after-parties they attend.

Getting the most performance out of a shoe is a top priority for athletes especially basketball players. Michael Jordan practically makes more of a fortune off shoes than his basketball career.

Many upscale sneakers have prices that rival the most expensive luxury brands in the world. Certain Limited Edition shoes can even drive up a high price tag. So, with that in mind, here are the 25 most expensive sneakers ever made.
