Steve Jobs’ iconic sandals up for auction; here is the price details

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to walk in the shoes of Apple Inc co-founder Steve Jobs, now’s your chance – but you may have to settle for a vintage pair of the iconic American businessman.

This is true! A pair of brown suede leather Birkenstock Arizona sandals previously worn by Steve Jobs is currently up for auction online at Julian’s Auctions. The shoes were part of Jobs’ infamous uniform.

However, this particular piece of Steve Jobs memorabilia isn’t exactly in pristine condition. Julian’s Auctions states that “the cork and jute feet retain the impression of Steve Jobs’ feet,” and that the rubber soles of the sandals are clearly preventing Jobs’ “heavy wear” in his day-to-day life.

During a performance of the sandals with the Birkenstock Company, Chrisann Brennan became passionate and excited to be reunited with Steve Jobs’s iconic sandals, during a performance of the sandals with the Birkenstock Company, Jobs’ former partner, and the mother of Steve Jobs’ first child, Lisa Brennan-Jobs. In an interview with Vogue titled “Apple Meets Birkenstock”, Brennan mentions:

“Sandals were part of his simple side. Those were his uniforms. The best thing about the uniform is that you don’t have to worry about what to wear in the morning.” He added, “He never did or bought anything to look different from others. He was convinced only of the intelligence and practicality of the design and the comfort of wearing it. And at Birkenstocks he didn’t feel like a businessman, so he had the freedom to think creatively”.
