Drake Owns Solid Gold Air Jordan Sneakers
Posted on August 7, 2016
Drake owns a pair of solid gold Air Jordan sneakers. He had them custom made by artist Matthew Senna. They are gold OVO x Air Jordan 10 sneakers.Drake says the sneakers weigh 100 pounds. Footwear News estimates that 100 pounds of 24-karat gold could be worth as much as $1.9 million based on current gold prices. GQ says the expensive luxury item could give Drake "one-upmanship" over his rival rappers. To be an A-list rapper apparently means buying ridiculously expensive items.
Drake writes in a post on Instagram that "these are not to wear." They are for art and not for regular use. It would also not be easy to move in such heavy shoes.
