Paging Swagg Man! Katz’s Delicatessen has teamed up with a shoe engraver to create a pair of Air Force 1s complete with forks, knives, and the legendary Katz’s signage.
“It’s certainly not a typical thing a deli would do,” admtted owner Jake Dell. “But it’s fun. The shoes come with a beautiful wooden box, too.”
Although the in-store bidding, which topped out at $950, has closed, hope is not lost if you’re in need of some rare deli sneakers. The kicks, designed by Absolelute, will be up on eBay until Saturday, with the opening bid set at a cool G (hey, it’s less than the price of lunch with Bill Moyers). If you’re in dire need of a quick gift, the Buy It Now price is (gulp) $5,000.
Along with the shoes and wooden box, which is lined with photos and art depicting the interior of Katz’s, you’ll also nab an etched iPod Nano pre-loaded with the soundtrack to — you guessed it — When Harry Met Sally.
