Apple Computer-branded Sneakers From The 1990s

It turns out, Apple has dabbled in more than just wristwatch 20 years ago. Who would have thought the would-be tech giant did in fact make a pair of Apple-branded sneakers? However, only a pair was made sometime in the 90s and like the now-classic timepiece, it was destined for promotional use and quite obviously, never intended for sale. Seriously, you didn’t think Apple would dip into the fashion industry, did you? Nah. Highly unlikely. From what have read thus far, Steve Jobs was never the fashion-ish type. Anywho, the said sneakers were a prototype and boasted a then-rad design, which was white leather, complete with perforation for breathability.

The pair of Apple-branded kicks featured the pre-1998 rainbow stripes logo along with a modified Garamond typeface “Apple” word stitched on the side and a lone rainbow stripes Apple logo, also stitched, on the tongue. There was really nothing to go gaga about as far as design is concerned and it looked just like a pair of regular sneakers, popular at that time, slapped with Apple branding. Though we could be wrong; it could be a big deal back in the 90s. The story went that the sneakers were sold to an Apple employee in the mid-90s and sometime in 2007, it surfaced on auction site, eBay, but by that time, it wasn’t in pristine condition; it was apparently “slightly used but in good shape.”

Regardless, it was sold, at a modest price of 79 bucks. Though it is worth noting that there’s a bit of conflicting info with regards to the auction cos there was another report saying it was on eBay in 2011, but we take it as it appeared on the auction site more than once and likely, sold by a different seller. Apparently, Scott King is the guy who is the last person to own it and still has it in his possession as of January 2016. Anyways, so, now you know and I am sure you are not hard up in owning a pair of Apple-branded sneakers, or are you?
