If you think you’re obsessed with shoes, wait until you see the pair that British rap act Tinie Tempah just purchased for an impressive $37,500.
British rapper Tinie Tempah placed the winning bid to get his hands on the first pair of Nike’s limited edition, McFly-inspired Air Mag sneakers on eBay. Celebrity gossip site TMZ reported that Tinie Tempah put down a whopping $37,500 for the shoes but it wasn’t just an extravagant purchase – proceeds of sales will be going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation.
Tinie Tempah is reportedly a huge “Back to the Future” fan and the shoes were gifted to the affluent rapper in a “plutonium” carrying case. While Tinie Tempah purchased the first pair, there are an additional 150 pairs a day for 9 more days up for grabs but you’ll have to act fast if you want to be part of the craze – the last known cheapest size 7 pair is currently priced at a pretty $4,000, while more popular size 12 shoes are currently priced with bids at $8,100.
