Streetwear: A Man Reportedly Turned Down $98,000 In Cash For His Autographed Nike Air Yeezys

April 25, 2014 in Streetwear | 8 Comments

At a Manhattan sneaker event last month, one young vendor turned away $98,000 in cash for his Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Red October” sneakers, designed by Kanye West and signed by the artist himself onstage at the Nassau Coliseum in February.

“I know I could buy a house with this kind of money,” said the vendor, Jonathan Rodriguez, 18, of Deer Park, N.Y., who said he planned to enlist in the Air Force. “But I’m a huge Kanye West fan. I can just work to get the money. The only way I’m selling them is if there is a reason that I need to sell or I’m offered life-changing money.”

How much money would it take for you to sell some autographed Nike Air Yeezys?
