Yesterday, Academy-Award winning actor and comedian Robin Williams passed away at the age of 63.
While fans may remember Williams for his acclaimed films and standup comedy, the sneaker community will always see the actor as a Bape-wearing sneakerhead who actually inspired Nike to design a sneaker after one of his TV characters. The Nike SB Dunk High "Mork & Mindy" was a nod to Williams' role as the alien Mork, who wore a red and silver suit, in the television sitcom Mork & Mindy.
Sneaker data website Campless currently has a profile of the coveted Dunk Highs where they assessed the aftermarket value of the sneakers and overall significance of the sneaker.
According to Campless, 107 pairs of the the "Mork & Mindy" Dunks were sold on eBay in the last 12 months and averaged a sale price of $202 (DS) and $103 (Used). Overall, Campless assigned the "Mork & Mindy" Dunks with a "Medium" label in terms of "sneakerhead significance." Considering the ranking is merely subjective and based on data, we're certain the Dunks mean a lot more to many owners right now that can't be marginalized by a simple dollar amount.

From the sneaker community, rest in peace, Robin Williams.
