Ever wonder what it feels like to walk into Flight Club and walk out with pretty much everything money can buy? While most readers will never experience that, they can live vicariously through soccer superstar Neymar, who spent over $18,000 on his trip to the consignment store in the latest episode of Sneaker Shopping.
What kind of sneakers does $18,000 get? His receipt from the trip is filled with hype pairs of old, like the elusive "Watch the Throne" Nike LeBron 9 and Nike Air Yeezy 2s, newer shoes in the same vein like Kaws' Jordan 4s, and plenty more random releases. As Neymar is a top-tier Nike athlete, the sneakers he purchases are exclusively from that brand.
Of course, Neymar doesn't need Flight Club's help getting his feet in exclusive shoes—don't forget that he was the first person spotted publicly wearing the Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempos. Apparently the gold pair he had was the victim of a prank by his Barcelona teammates though.
"They played a trick on me in the changing room," Neymar says, "and threw my sneakers in the bath, so I couldn't wear them again."
Something tells us Neymar had no problem getting a replacement pair.
