If you may recall from this past September, Patrick George informed all of us about a seriously ugly pair of Air Jordans that were being sold new for $200 per pair at stores. Jalops laughed. I kinda liked them. But apparently the people who bought them were the smart ones.
At least one collector has put them up for sale on lyst.com for $400. That's right, ladies and gentlemen. In about seven short months, these bright red shoes have DOUBLED in value. There are a couple of other sites that are charging as low as $240, but I'm willing to bet that feet have touched them. And no serious shoe collector wants footwear that has seen pavement or bunions.
The lesson in all of this?
1. Buy weird stuff.
2. Hold onto weird stuff for some time.
