STEVE JOBS' PERSONALLY OWNED & WORN SANDALS
Finding anything so directly related to Steve Jobs — and with such high level of recognizability, part of his "signature look" — is extremely rare. Artifacts previously belonging to pop culture icons (and Steve Jobs was certainly that, beyond his genius-standing in the Technology sector) have been skyrocketing in value over the past years: Tom Cruise’s Top Gun helmet was recently auctioned off for $360,000, Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones hat for $520,000, a script from Breakfast At Tiffany’s for $846,000, Darth Vader’s helmet for $900,000, Steve McQueen’s “Le Mans” racing suit for $924,000, Dorothy’s shoes from The Wizard of Oz for $3 Million, and Kurt Cobain’s “Nirvana” acoustic guitar for $6 Million — with no end in sight for price acceleration in the high-end pop culture collectors' market.
The sandals meaningfully represent the public image of Steve Jobs, by virtue of being something that he’d always held near and dear. And while, with these sandals, one could literally walk in Steve Job's shoes, if so inclined, we'd advise to remember his famous line on that topic instead: Think different.
