Roman Sharf, the founder and CEO of the luxury watch dealer Luxury Bazaar, won an autographed pair of Donald Trump’s golden “Never Surrender high-tops” after placing a winning bid of $9,000 at Philadelphia’s Sneaker Con.

Soon after, Sharf was lambasted by legacy media, many of them referring to him as a "Russian oligarch."

Here is his response:

Trump announced the launch of the golden sneakers, which are part of his new shoe line, during a surprise appearance at Philly Sneaker Con on Saturday.

The shoes, which feature an American flag detail on the back, cost $399.

Limited to just 1,000 pairs, the sneakers reportedly sold out less than two hours after the launch.

“We are going to have a winning celebration come this November, and I’ll be wearing these one-of-one Donald Trump-signed sneakers,” Sharf said after winning.
