Guinness World Records was wrong about the largest sneaker collection in the world (there are definitely people with more than 2,388 pairs – Clark Kent says Biz has 4000-5000, for example), so what else is Guinness wrong about?
The entry for Most Expensive Sneaker says:
Ken Courtney (USA), founder of fashion label Ju$t Another Rich Kid, created a pair of high-top Nike Dunks dipped in 18-garat gold as part of a fashion show in New York, USA, in 2007. Five pairs were made, costing $4,053
First of all – dipped in gold? C’mon, that doesn’t count! Oh, look, I dropped my car keys in my Concords . . . new most expensive sneaker!
Second – $4,053? Granted, this entry is from 2007, but that’s not even close! Just last month a pair of Air MAGs went for $7,120 and a LeBron X What the MVP sold for $6,100.
Guinness, it’s time to update some entries.
