By now, you'll probably have seen the extent of Lil Yachty's love for sneakers. Just a couple of weeks ago, the Atlanta-based rapper showed off his collection in a two-part episode of Complex Closets. Needless to say, the episode went viral pretty quickly, thanks to the rapper's surprisingly impressive collection of sneakers.

Lil Yachty's sneaker closet, or better yet, closets, include some incredibly rare finds. In them, he showed off a pair of never-before-seen promo sneakers including the Nike Ten Classics from Seinfeld, not forgetting a pair of Nike Air sneakers from Scrubs, released in celebration of the comedy's 100th episode.

The rapper's collection also includes some of the most sought-after kicks around, such as Kanye West's collaboration with BAPE on the Bapsta "College Dropout", and even a pair of 1980s bootleg Air Force 1s, which have an arrow instead of the Swoosh, for which he paid a whopping $1,000 (and jokingly renamed them That Way 1s). Some of the sneakers in Lil Yachty's possession are so rare, you can't even Google them.

If you, like many of us here at Highsnobiety, watched Yachty take us through his sneaker collection in awe, wondering how you can cop at least one pair, we've got your back. Our very own Commerce Content Curator Nigel Minani — a true sneaker connoisseur — has done some pretty extensive research in order to round up 10 of the most expensive and sought-after sneakers in Lil Yachty's possession. Needless to say, these sneakers are only available on resell websites, so be ready to part with a few hundred (in some cases, thousand) bucks.

Whether you plan to cop or are just here to window shop, peep the sneakers below.

BAPE x Ronnie Fieg "Fiegsta" – $450



BAPE x Ronnie Fieg

Buy at Stadium Goods

These sneakers are a BAPE classic with a twist, thanks to Ronnie Fieg's personal touch. They also happen to be Lil Yachty's "second favorite BAPEs ever."

Air Jordan 1 Retro (1994) – $800

Air Jordan 1 Retro (1994)



Buy at StockX

This shoe is one of the most, if not the most classic sneaker of all time. Yachty owns not one, but three pairs. Unlike other models, the release year (1994) can be seen on the inside of the box, rather than the side.

Nike x A-COLD-WALL* Air Force 1 High – $1,200

Air Force 1 High



Buy at StockX

Unlike the Air Jordan 1s above, these sneakers from Nike and A-COLD-WALL* debuted recently, after much anticipation. Unfortunately, they came in very limited sizes and are pretty hard to come by, hence the price point.

NikeLab x VLONE Air Force 1 Low – $1,800

Air Force 1 Low


NikeLab x VLONE

Buy at GOAT

These Air Force 1s are part of A$AP Bari and his brand VLONE's collaborative collection with Nike. In the Complex Closets episode, Yachty can be seen showing off the F&F version.

BAPE x Kanye West Bapesta "College Dropout" – $4,000

Bapesta 'College Dropout'


BAPE x Kanye West

Buy at StockX

This is one of Kanye West's first sneaker collaborations, and one of the most sought-after Bapestas of all time. The sneakers pay homage to the rapper's debut album College Dropout, and are the reason the Ronnie Fieg collab takes second place as Yachty's favorite BAPEs of all time.

Louis Vuitton x Kanye West Jaspers "Patchwork" – $6,850

Jaspers Patchwork


Louis Vuitton x Kanye West

Buy at StockX

Another of Kanye's collaboration made the cut. This one is a classic, created during Ye's Louis Vuitton Don era. Yachty claims these are "the most beautiful, ugly shoes [he's] ever seen in [his] life."

Jordan for Oregon Ducks Air Jordan 13 Retro PE – $7,200

Air Jordan 13 Retro PE


Jordan for Oregon Ducks

Buy at StockX

This special Retro PE pair of Jordans was created for a few select players of the Oregon Ducks (The University of Oregon's football team). What makes these shoes so special is that, instead of the signature Jumpman logo, they feature a duck to honor the team.

Jordan x Carhatt x Eminem Air Jordan 4 – $10,000

Air Jordan 4


Jordan x Carhartt x Eminem

Buy at GOAT

This is a super rare collaboration between Jordan, Carhartt, and Eminem. Yachty is particularly proud to own these – "I feel so happy holding these... These shoes are fucking fire, man." And while the black pair is a recent purchase for him, he's still looking to cop the blue ones.

Nike Air Mag Back to the Future (2016) – $20,000

Air Mag (2016)



Buy at StockX

These incredibly rare sneakers were first auctioned off in 2011. Yachty only wore them once and, in true Murphy's Law fashion, he messed them up and stained them at the front. He's still in mourning.

Jordan x UNDFTD Air Jordan 4 Retro – $28,500

Air Jordan 4 Retro


Jordan x UNDFTD

Buy at Flight Club

These are the rarest, most expensive sneakers on the list. Very few people were able to get their hands on them when they dropped, and Lil Yachty is one of them. With a price tag of almost $30,000, they're probably the most expensive kicks you'll ever encounter.
