We're back with a few more hot sneaker finds up for bid on eBay.  This week is full of rare heat, including sample Sheed Air Forces, a crazy yet forgotten Nike running shoe, and a vintage Nike Air Trainer shirt that you'll probably never see again.  Let's get started!


Top Pick

Nike Air Force 1 High Sheed Sample

Air Force 1 fanatics will be drooling over this one.  What we have here are some very rare Rasheed Wallace PE samples from his days as a Blazer, never released at retail.  They don't make 'em like this anymore!


Vintage Deadstock of the Week

Nike Air Grudge

With the biggest Swoosh you've ever seen on a Nike shoe, the Air Grudge is one of the forgotten odd-ball sneakers of the Nike back catalog.   Basically the running shoe equivalent of the Air More Uptempo, the Grudge wasn't afraid of branding with gigantic Swooshes and "AIR" branding at the heel.  If you're a size 12, don't hesitate to grab this rare deadstock pair for $200.


Steal of the Week

OG Air Jordan X "Powder Blue"

A shoe priced at $390 would usually never be a steal, until you consider this deadstock OG pair of the soon to be re-released Powder Blue Air Jordan X is probably less than double the price of what you'll end up paying for the lower quality retro after tax or resale pricing.


T-Shirt of the Week

Vintage Nike Air Trainer Long Sleeve T-Shirt

An original Nike Air Trainer shirt from the shoe's release in 1987.  Good luck finding another one of these.


Fakes of the Week

Air Jordan 3 "Do the Wrong Thing"

Sole Collector does not vouch for the authenticity of any shoe or its seller. If you choose to bid, bid at your own risk.
