It’s likely that celebrity sneakerheads gave themselves no limit for high bids on the Nike Mag 2011 auctions. Tinie Tempah threw down $37,500 for the first live auction in Hollywood, CA, and Kid Cudi ended up picking up four pairs himself. We even saw baseball hurler Brian Wilson actually wear his pair around the dugout, but add Kanye West to list of ‘sneakerheads with money’ to have rocked the Mags out in public. Kanye West was spotted with these super-high-tops backstage during the ACL Festival in Austin, TX, and it seems to fit his style quite seamlessly as the Air Yeezy design itself drew inspiration from the then-fictitious Nike sneaker.
