For sneaker aficionados everywhere, the chance to snag some of the most illustrious variants ever released might seem like a pipe dream. Aside from the obvious complications associated with finding, acquiring, and receiving the shoes, there’s also the aspect of historical relevance — making certain examples the focus of collectors, the world over. Now, Sotheby’s and Stadium Goods have decided to make things easier for would-be buyers by joining forces for a once-in-a-lifetime auction.

The most recent collaboration between the renowned auction site and the sneaker world’s legendary purveyor of goods is bound to set the footwear world ablaze — boasting a significant collection of the medium’s most iconic offerings. From rare examples like the 1972 Nike Waffle Trainer “Moon Shoe,” Back to the Future II Nike Mag, Travis Scott Air Jordan 4, and the Air Jordan 5 Retro F&F Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air, all the way to lesser-known items like the Adidas’ Karl Lagerfeld PW x CC x HU x NMD, interested parties will find a menagerie of influential sneakers that have done their part to shape the image of today’s footwear industry. If you’re looking to pick up a pair of rarified shoes, head over to Sotheby’s website — the Ultimate Sneaker Collection will be available until July 23.
