Have you ever enjoyed a first-class experience so much that you wished it would never end? Well, sneakerheads and AvGeeks, rejoice! Virgin American has teamed up with SearchnDesign in Milan to create a sneaker that brings you the first-class experience on the ground. The catch, however, is that there's only one pair in the world and you have to outbid everyone else on eBay in order to be the owner of this one-of-a-kind statement footwear.

The sneakers feature many of the amenities you'll find while flying first class with Virgin America — Italian leather, mood lighting, a built-in phone charger, Wi-Fi, a video display and more. If you're interested in purchasing and being the only person in the world to wear such unique kicks, note that the eBay auction ends Sunday, October 23, 2016, at 1:13pm ET. As of this writing, the current highest bid is $8,700, so be willing to fork over a pretty solid chunk of change if you want to sport these sneakers. The ultimate experience would be flying Virgin America first class while wearing the sneakers — if you do it, be sure to let us know!
