A man in Redwood City, California claims to have the largest Air Jordan collection known to man. He claims he started with just 5 pairs, then 5 turned to 10 then 20 then 50 and so on.. He now has 327 pairs (Although at the time of writing he may have already purchased more). Although it is clear that he has no intention of wearing them on the court, or the street… or anywhere for that matter. One of his friends suggested taking his collection to the news after he googled other collections and came to the realization that his might just be the biggest. A lot of the shoes he purchased are his size (9 & ½) but he soon realized that since he has no intention of ever wearing them he started purchasing a wide array of sizes (including up to size 18).
He stated that his favorite pair are his patent leather black and red Jordan 11. A lot of sneaker heads will often line up for days out the front of their favorite sneaker store in order to snatch up a pair on the release day, however, this man decided to purchase his online to avoid the cues. One of the reasons that these cheap Jordan shoes hold such sentimental value to the man is that he was a fan of Jordan before Michael Jordan even released his first pair of Air Jordan’s. One pair of Jordan’s can go for hundreds if not thousands of dollars so one could only imagine how much his entire collection is worth. The man however says that he has no intention of selling his collection, he collects purely for his passion and obsession with the shoes and not because he’s trying to make a quick buck. “I’m here just to show,” the man said, “that people do collect certain unique, ironic things in their life.”
