Started from the bottom now he’s… buying 24 karat gold shoes! Air Jordan 10s to be specific.
Just a day after throwing it back to when he used to borrow cash from his mom to shop on eBay, Drake wants to make sure everyone knows that he can now afford to shop for himself. The Canadian musician posted a pair of limited edition solid gold shoes by artist Matthew Senna with the hashtag #TheseAreNotToWear.
According to GQ, the shoes should retail for approximately $1.9 million (approximately $2.47 million CAD) based on the value of the gold alone, but TMZ claims that price is exorbitant, and that the shoes likely cost Drake between $3,500 and $30,000.
“We’re told the shoes aren’t made entirely from gold. They’re a mix of gold and other materials, including parts of real shoe. Each shoe is around 16 inches long and weighs 20 lbs.”
Either way, it’s a pretty price to pay for some decorative sneaks.
