There’s one thing that makes Indian actors so popular across the world apart from their acting skills. What comes to your mind when we say this? Well, if you start taking notice of them, a very perceptible thing about each of these Bollywood celebrities is their expensive choice of lifestyle and fashion. Ever since the whole athleisure wave took off, sneakers have been the most happening commodity to own. From Air Dior to Balenciaga, the fight to possess these classic sneakers continues. Many of the B-town celebs are madly in love with owning the best of the best sneakers that are available in the market.
If you notice, especially Bollywood actors, are surpassing every sneaker trend even before it sets in entirely. After all, being a celebrity comes with the perks of owning stuff that’s not yet released. It also comes with the added advantage of skipping long queues to buy your favourite pair. From attending an event to walking to the gym, these male stars have been putting on their kicks almost everywhere. Let's take a look at the most expensive sneakers owned by a few of the B-town actors. Here’s a list of nine Bollywood actors, whose sneakers are worth a watch!
The Gully Boy actor, Ranveer Singh was papped in the city of Mumbai and was sporting his rare and super expensive Adidas Yeezy Foam Sneakers. These kicks are crafted from EVA foam and harvested algae, making it one of the most lightweight and progressive pair. It steps out in a unique style and before you start wondering the price of them, let us be the one to tell you. This pair of Ranveer Singh’s exclusive sneakers are worth approximately Rs 1 Lakh.
While Akshay Kumar was promoting his film, Housefull 4, he was spotted wearing a pair of orange Balenciaga Speed Sneakers. The thing with most Balenciagas is that they have a very limited production run and so finding a pair after a year they were first introduced is a little tough. These kicks are worth approximately Rs 70k. Balenciaga's have now replaced the orange speed with a pair of burgundy ones.
During the promotion of his film, Kabir Singh, Shahid Kapoor had donned a pair of Rick Owens Black and Off-White Hiking Sneakers. This pair is priced at around Rs 95k. However, these sneakers are currently available for approximately Rs 40k from major premium e-commerce sites on the internet. The actor looked dope in Rick Owen's sneakers.
Shah Rukh Khan has been rocking variations of his Golden Goose kicks and can't seem to get enough of it. But out of the dozens of pairs he owns, his favourite appears to be these pre-distressed sneakers. The Golden Goose kicks came with a price tag of around Rs 38k. There are several versions of the distressed superstar sneakers from the brand available at online retailers, but this particular pair is the choice of Shah Rukh Khan in terms of style.
We couldn’t get our eyes off Abhishek Bachchan’s sneakers. He was spotted wearing Adidas + Kanye West Yeezy 700 V3 Azael, with the upper composed of monofilament engineered mesh with RPU overlays. A unique feature of this pair is that the RPU cage glows in the dark. 'Azael' is the evolutionary third version of Kanye West’s sneakers and comes at a whopping price of approximately Rs 2 Lakh.
At a Zee Cine Awards' red carpet, the Kalank actor, Varun Dhawan was seen carrying a luxurious pair of kicks from Dior. He had worn the SS19 Air Dior B22 sneakers in a cool grey, blue and pink colour. These kicks are from Kim Jones' first collection as artistic director for the brand. The cost of this pair of sneakers is above Rs 75k.
Hrithik Roshan was seen wearing the Nike Air Vapormax X Off-White “The Ten”. When it was originally launched, the sneakers had costed Rs 18k. However, just like with all of Virgil Abloh's creations, these sneakers too garnered a lot of demand and people started trading them. On average, the cost of these kicks is around Rs 71k.
Ranbir Kapoor was spotted donning a pair of Nike Air Dior sneakers. The sneaker had a limited production run of 8,500, which when you compare it to other Air Jordan 1s, is not that high a number. The current price of this pair is approximately Rs 5 Lakh.
Arjun Kapoor was papped at the airport, where he was seen wearing the Court Classic SL/06 sneakers from Saint Laurent. He had paired these sneakers with rugged denim jeans and a black hoody. These kicks are made using canvas and have the brand's name embroidered on them. Adding to this, the canvas is distressed by hand. The price of Arjun’s Saint Laurent sneakers is around Rs 40k.
