As Collections go Jordan’s are Overrated. Sorry Sneakerheads

Yes I’m going at the brand again.. But follow me for a little bit. Last week I went to Sneaker Con DC. If your not familiar it’s a show to buy sell and trade your wares be among vendors, customizers, and the like. It was a great show much to see and awe, and yet there were Jordan’s at nearly every table (if not all) every where you look. Patrons at the event not even old enough to have watched him play can still and do have “retro” J’s. Jordan retired in 1994 which will bring you from the 1’s up to the jordan IX’s while he was still in the game (first retirement) and what 29 total styles for that part of the brand at least one a year so.. what’s so “retro” about his shoes? Look up any “jordan retro” the good ones so 1 thru 12 then look at all the different colorways.. You got punked they never stopped the line long enough to have a quality retro product, its not even worth the resale. I could just wait till the next whichever comes out in that new color way that only thousands of people will have a pair of (sarcastically). Here are two quick sneaker terms, OG originals before a retro is released, or DS deadstock brand new never worn or tried on. The term OG for J’s went out the window years ago so unless you selling DS.. Jordan’s are overrated.

Consider a pair of sneakers I sold a few years ago the Nike Coraline Dunks, (regret it too) they came out with the animated movie “Coraline” very limited pairs were made and even fewer in special edition boxes will never be made again there will be no new colorways no restock that’s a true collectors item. Ever collect pro sport cards? Comic books? Or Barbie’s (for the lady readers)? How many times did they remake Michael Jordan rookie cards? Or number one Superman? What about 1000 more barbie by stefano canturi? Whats that make your collection? -Vonte
