Bicion x Mache Custom Kicks – The World’s Most Expensive Sneakers
Bicion x Mache Custom Kicks – The World’s Most Expensive Trainers.
Bicion and Mache customs have collaborated to create what is said to be, the world’s most expensive pair of trainers. This one-of-a-kind pair of very “flashy” trainers was unveiled in New York displaying its iced out appearance with tailor made white diamonds and blue sapphires (all done in-house by Bicion) set into 18k gold structured on these pair of bad boys.
There is also a solid gold tag which depicts the collaboration between Bicion and Mache Customs.
It has a current asking price of $4M (£2.7M) however, it will be auctioned off again in New York with all proceeds going to Sole4Souls, a US-based charity that collects used and new shoes and gives them to the less privileged in need of footwear. Bicion and Mache Customs have called these pair of footwear jewellery ‘The Fire Monkey’, with an obvious connection to it being the Year of The Monkey (2016 Chinese New Year).
Credit to luxury designer Dan Gamache also known as Mache (owner of Mache Custom Kicks) and Gurps Rai (owner of Bicion, who also supplied the diamonds) for such a unique collaboration and for also creating such a masterpiece. With these going on auction, it is predicted to be sold for a lot more than the asking price and will of course be a collectors item. I doubt these are a pair you would play basket ball in, unless you have a few of these as part of your unique collection of basketball footwear!
