S otheby's and Stadium Goods happily announce that all but one of the rare sneaker pairs on offer in Stadium Goods: the Ultimate Sneaker Collection have been privately acquired for $850,000. News of this comes several days before the auction's planned closing date of 23 July.
International entrepreneur and collector Miles Spencer Nadal initially presented an offer to buy the entire collection, which includes highly-coveted sneakers by Nike, Air Jordan, adidas, and more. All but one consignor accepted Mr. Nadal's offer; the remaining lot, the historically-significant Nike Waffle Racing Flat 'Moon Shoe', remains open for bidding in the public online auction, ending 23 July.
Mr. Nadal is a highly-regarded entrepreneur, philanthropist and collector of classic cars; he plans to display his new collection of rare sneakers at his private museum, the Dare to Dream Automobile Museum in Toronto, Canada.
In the meantime, all 100 of the sought-after sneakers will continue to be on display to the public at Sotheby's New York headquarters until the auction's end-date. Come check out the limited edition drops and place your bid on the one lot remaining – before your time is up.
