What Recession....

Above are some vintage Peter Max 1969 sneakers. Recently a pair of these without the box sold on eBay for $688.80 which is one of the highest prices Ive seen a pair go for in awhile. Peter Max is a German-born American artist best known for his iconic art style in the 1960s. At first, his “Cosmic 60s” art, as it came to be known, appeared on posters and were seen on the walls of college dorms all across America. Max then became fascinated with new printing techniques that allowed for four-color reproduction on product merchandise. I believe there were four different Peter Max models were released – two high-tops and two low-tops. So next time you're out and about at a flea market and see a cool psycedelic pair of sneakers they could be some vintage Peter Max's ;-)
