Apple shoes spotted on eBay

$79 seems like a bargain


Normally we wouldn't torment you with an eBay auction that's already ended, but we've learned over the years that practically anything about Apple is worth mentioning--even used sneakers.

After seeing all manner of Mac tattoos, haircuts and other signs of affection, we're accustomed to seeing the familiar logo pretty much anywhere. The only thing that's somewhat surprising is that image-obsessed Apple allowed the hallowed icon to be used on something as easily soiled as footwear, even for just prototypes. (Then again, it was done during the non-Jobs years.)

Whatever the case, this size-8.5 promotional pair from the early '90s went for $79, according to TechEBlog. Given the cult of the Mac, we thought it would have drawn more than one bid.
