eBay has some real gems this week in the sneaker department. Check out Sole Collector's top picks that are unfortunately all out of most of our budgets, but are some nice eye candy, nonetheless. You probably can afford the last shoe this week, but we wouldn't recommend buying them!
The Cream of the eBay Crop
Game Worn Shaquille O'Neal Reebok Shaq Attaqs
Up for a Buy It Now price of $4,500 are an awesome pair of game worn size 20 Shaq Attaqs from his rookie year. They are actually in great condition and even come with a case and two Shaq rookie cards. The price is steep, but the seller is accepting offers. Try your luck HERE.
Obscure Game Worn Shoe of the Week
Glen Rice Champion Basketball Shoes
Before Glen's days with Nautica, he was wearing another obscure sneaker brand: Champion. Everybody knows Champion for their 90's basketball jerseys, but few celebrate their footwear. It''s your lucky week, because now you have a chance to own your very own pair of Glen Rice game worn and autographed Champion basketball kicks.
"You'll Never See These Again" of the Week
Michael Jordan's Nike Golf Cleats
Alright, Jordan collector's, if you really want to step your collections up, you'll need these Nike golf cleats that MJ actually played in and signed. Only $5,000! Check'em out HERE.
Vintage Deadstock of the Week
OG Sample Nike Air Unlimited
It's a shoe that many collectors would like to get their hands on and/or praying for a retro release of, the Air Unlimited. Here's a pair of OG samples in pristine condition available for $600...that isn't that bad of a price, all things considered. Note the original $19.95 price tag from the Nike employee store, though. Drool over them HERE.
