A pair of Nike Air Mag self-lacing sneakers – a concept that was first introduced in the iconic movie Back to the Future and brought to life by Nike in 2016 – sold Sunday for $52,500 setting the world record for a collectible sneaker at public auction and smashing the previous record of $32,500.
The Air Mags were part of a first-time auction by Heritage Auctions, titled The Future is Now, which brought together rare pop culture and urban art objects, sneakers and “street art.”
The Future is Now offered 151 lots and marked the first time a major international auction house has offered collectible sneakers. The sale also included surfboards, skateboard decks and street art together in one sale.
“This auction was a successful first step to bring together a number of different themes and objects. Collectors were excited to see their passions displayed on a public stage, giving them a platform and a voice. As a result, we saw a record number of page views on ha.com, amazing press coverage and the foot traffic at the Beverly Hills office during the preview leading up to the auction was amazing,” said Leon Benrimon, Director of Modern and Contemporary Art at Heritage Auctions. “We shattered the world record for collectible sneakers sold at public auction by $20,000 when the Nike Air Mags sold for $52,500. I was also pleased to see the prices realized for the other collecting categories as well.”
Highlights also included Futura 2000’s Untitled, a large-scale work with spray paint and acrylic on canvas, which realized $35,000, two separate Damien Hirst hand-drawn skateboard decksDots 5 – Skull and Dots 5 – Little Shark each of which sold for $12,500 and a silkscreen print on t-shirt Andy Warhol titled Self-Portrait with Fright Wig, circa 1986 which hammered for $12,500.

The Ultimate Guide To Choosing The Perfect Viking Bracelet For Your Business
So, you’re in the market for a new bracelet. But not just any bracelet – a Viking bracelet. A piece of stylish and functional jewelry will make you feel empowered and motivated to take on whatever the day throws your way. With so many options out there, how do you choose the perfect one for you and your business? Look no further – this guide will help you select the perfect Viking bracelet for your professional needs.
- Size Matters:
The first step in finding your perfect Viking bracelet is determining what size you need. Do you want a bracelet that is delicate and dainty? Or bold and chunky? The size of your wrist will also play a role in which style of bracelet looks best on you. If you have a small wrist, go for a thinner bracelet that won’t overwhelm your frame. Conversely, if you have a larger wrist, you can choose a chunkier style without worry. This jewelry store provide different sizes of bracelets and you can have a look.
- Think About The Materials:
When it comes to Viking bracelets, there are several different materials to choose from – like leather, silver, or even gold. What type of metal do you usually gravitate towards? Do you prefer the look of leather or suede? Choose a material that not only looks good on you but also matches your personal aesthetic. If you are looking for a statement piece, go big with an oversized silver or gold cuff. If you want something a little more subdued, opt for a thin leather strap with an intricate metal clasp.
- Consider The Color:
Color is another important factor to think about when choosing your Viking bracelet. Do you want something that will stand out and make a statement? Or do you prefer more understated jewelry? Metallics are always a good choice if you want something versatile that will go with everything in your closet. If you are looking for something a little more unique, try out one of the many colored leather or bone options available on the market today.
- Make sure the Fit is Right:
The fit is one of the most important things to consider when selecting a Viking bracelet. Do you have a small or larger wrist? Are you looking for something that will slide easily over your hand, or do you want something with a bit more grip? With so many different designs and materials available, it can be tough to find the perfect fit.
- Think About What You Would Like To Wear It With:
Do you want your Viking bracelet to be the focal point of your outfit, or do you want to pair it with other accessories for a complete look? If you are looking for something that will stand out easily, go with something in bolder colors or a more intricate design. However, opt for something less flashy if you want your bracelet to blend in and be part of the ensemble.
Choosing the perfect Viking bracelet for yourself or your business can seem like a daunting task. But with this guide, hopefully, it’s a little easier! Remember to consider size, materials, and color when selecting – and don’t be afraid to try something outside your comfort zone. After all, fashion is all about taking risks!
