Lots of Apple fans have wished they could walk a mile in Steve Jobs’ shoes. Now, one lucky buyer will have the chance, literally – after paying a record $218,000 dollars for a pair of Jobs’ Birkenstock sandals.

The “well-used” brown suede sandals were worn by Jobs during the 1970s and 1980s, a pivotal period during which Jobs founded Apple with Steve Wozniak and released a series of innovative home computers.

According to Julien’s Auctions, the sandals’ “cork and jute footbed retains the imprint of Steve Jobs’ feet, which had been shaped after years of use.” They were expected to sell for approximately $60,000, but the final price came to $218,750, a new record for sandals at auction. The sandals were also accompanied by an NFT.

The sandals’ buyer was not named by the auction house.
