Why barter with other sneaker heads on eBay.com for bootleg Jordans when you can get the real thing for $15,000 at a pawn shop that deals in throwback kicks? The president’s teenage daughter collects a paycheck fetching coffee and dry cleaning for the staff over at CBS, but one enterprising 16-year-old has found the perfect niche: a sneaker pawn shop.
A 14-year-old Autistic boy who went missing from his Queens, NY school may have drowned after running from a dog, the NY Post reports. Avonte Oquendo disappeared on Oct. 4 after walking away from the Riverview School in Long Island City. He was seen running from a dog in Hunter’s Point South Park, a short distance from his school. Police believe Avonte may have fallen into the East River after running from a dog. Avonte’s family said the mute boy was petrified of dogs and water.
This post is for true sneaker heads who appreciate wearing another man’s used, smelly pair of throwback Jordans.
A used pair of one-off OVO Air Jordans was bidding for $100,000 on eBay yesterday, according to ESPN Sports business reporter Darren Rovell.
Rovell cautions that the basketball shoes, which were gifted to Drake by Nike, may not be genuine. But that didn’t matter to sneaker heads who pushed the bids over $100,000.
Nike says it gave shoes to Drake, but have no way of telling if $100K shoes on eBay are authentic http://t.co/DZsNZCnaXP
