“The player’s cheap Air Jordans can’t be bought without spending money. You have to rely on fate.” In 2013, Fan Shuoshuo accidentally learned from friends that someone wanted to shoot a pair of cheap Jordan 8. The pair was worn by Jordan at the Chicago regular season final game on April 22, 1993. After the Bulls defeated the Pistons at home, Jordan signed the name and handed it to a security guard who worked at the Chicago Stadium for many years. In the second year, the Bulls’ home stadium was changed to the United Center Gymnasium.
“The security guard kept the shoes carefully for 20 years. He wanted to change hands because he lacked money when changing rooms. In order to live up to Jordan’s gift, he intended to transfer the shoes to senior collectors. My friend said a lot of good words, the other party agreed to transfer me $10,000.”
Fan Shuoshu explained that compared with the commercially available version of the sneakers, the player version has a higher level of technology and a softer leather. It also incorporates many personal elements of the player, such as the jersey number, personal identification, and short name. He pointed to the “Jordan 8” shoe logo said: “Look, this pair of shoes code is 920112, the last 4 is Jordan’s mid-term personal code, plus the shoe size is 13, which is usually a testimony to ‘Jordan pro-wear’ Important sign.”
“What if I buy fakes?” Fan Shushuo laughed. In addition to these little-known sneaker details, a series of strong evidence support, such as the sneaker certificate and the official certificate of the team, was required before the player’s shoes were collected. Letters, game images, etc., will undergo a very strict comparison, “it is almost impossible to make a fake.”
Fan Yushuo has collected 15 pairs of “Jordan pro-wearing”. Among them, “Jordan 1” in 1985 was auctioned from the auction house. Only five pairs were found in the world, and the circle was valued at 50,000 US dollars.
The ” cheap Jordans 6″ in 1991 was of great significance. This was the first time Jordan led the Bulls to the NBA championship. There were three signatures on the cheap Jordan shoes. The earliest signature was on the heel, and gradually dimmed with the passage of time. So Fan Shuoshu asked the Jordan to sign two at the toe. “The price of Jordan’s signature is $1,000, which is generally trained in Jordan. Camp to find someone to help sign up.”
The black and white “Jordan 13” has always been favored by Chinese fans and is called “Panda Shoes.” Fan Yushuo’s collection was passed by Jordan in 1997 when he led the team against the Hawks. After the game he gave the shoes to a small caddy, and the socks were left in the shoes. Fan Shuoshuo pointed to a little black dot that Jordan could hardly see on his signature. He said seriously: “Don’t underestimate this black spot. Without it, it can’t be regarded as a ‘full sign’. Jordan’s later signature is more and more simple. ”
In addition to work, Fan Shuoshu spends five or six hours a day on sneakers, checking the information on the Internet and communicating with collectors. Fortunately, his wife is also a sports fan and supports him. “He doesn’t smoke, drink, or play online games. The only love is sneakers. Of course, I have no reason to object.”
Fan Shuoshuo’s Australian family has nearly a hundred pairs of player sneakers. Most of them are wrapped in white towels and placed in shoe boxes. The tribute is in a two-meter-high cabinet. He is not only reluctant to wear, he wears white gloves every time he takes his shoes. The owner of the largest shoe store in Melbourne once confessed to him by “borrowing shoes” and was rejected by him. After hearing that the neighbor’s family was stolen, he also bought a 750 kg heavy safe shoes.
“I think the most important thing in the collection of wholesale Jordans sale is the cultural value, not the commercial value.” Recently, Fan Shuoshuo made a video program “Shu Shuo Shoe” on the Internet to promote the sneaker culture and share the collection with domestic Tibetan friends. Experience. Netizens are very interested in “Which shoes are the hottest” “Which shoes will appreciate”, but he is reluctant to avoid such problems and respond indignantly: “That should be considered by sponsors, not really love shoes.” People think about it.”
What surprised Fan Shuoshuo is that under his influence, the first English word that the 3-year-old son “Little Rice Group” would say was “Jordan”. Every time he went shopping, the little guy would habitually go to the Jordan shoes sale first. Shop running.
“From the moment you have the first pair of cheap Jordans for sale, you have embarked on an endless long road where you can’t stop.” Fan Shuoshu accidentally found this sentence in a magazine and thought it. He obviously foresaw that this “endless road” is now succeeding…
