Kanye West wore sneakers during his performance at the 2008 Grammys that sold for $ 1.8 million in a private sale, according to Sotheby's. The rapper wore the Nike, which he helped to co-design himself, when he sang 'Hey Mama' and 'Stronger'.

The price broke the record for the most expensive sneakers ever sold, beating the 1985 Nike Air Jordan 1s Michael Jordan wore when he broke the board during a preseason game in Italy, according to TMZ. That means West's shoes are not only triple Jordan's record, but it is also the first time that a pair of sneakers has sold for more than a million dollars.

Kanye and Mark Smith designed a shoe that combined the classic Nike Swoosh with Yeezy and Kanye's signature. Sotheby's reported that the buyer is RARES, a tennis investment platform, so they may be resold in the future for a higher price.
