Jordan Brand originally teamed up with UK artist Dave White for a special make-up of the Air Jordan 1 in February of 2011, where 23 pairs of a the AJ1 designed in sublime DW fashion would be auctioned off for charity. This gold-tipped USA-inspired colorway was one of the most talked about sneakers of the year, as the entire auction event drew in over $23,000 for the Jordan Brand WINGS For The Future charity. With just 23 pairs in existence, the value of these rarities have climbed in tandem with the rise in the general popularity of Air Jordans, so a look back at the final twenty-three winning bids tells you that these were sold at a ‘bargain’ of sorts (an average of just over $1,000 per pair). In fact, the two size 10.5s that were auctioned off sole at $1,000 and $1,197. Refresh your memory with these one-of-23s below by checking out the gallery, and see what the asking price for a size 10.5 is today by clicking through to this listing from depeche23mode on eBay.
