Your brain might have 404‘d on that title, but that’s what StockX have valued DJ Skee’s sneaker collection at. StockX bill themselves as ‘the stock market of things’ but before they master all of the world’s product, they’ve started with sneakers. Working in the same manner as the New York Stock Exchange, StockX treat sneakers as companies. So instead of your sneaker simply being listed for sale, you throw it up with a hidden asking price, and when the someone bids that price – the shoe is sold immediately. The shoe’s worth is then derived from its market value.
DJ Skee is one of those multi-hyphenate types whose success makes others feel like quitting drinking for a fortnight. He’s finessed a few business decisions in his lifetime, and accredits his acumen to flipping sneakers during his youth in Minneapolis. He’d buy three pairs and sell two of them to pay for the first – an enterprising plan that seems to have worked out. Recently he got StockX on his show, Skee TV, and they dove into his collection to provide a comprehensive evaluation. Being data dudes, what ensued was a tonne of numbers – which they break down on their blog – but what’s most important is the jaw-droppingly high bottom line of $404, 000.

The coveted set of Drake “OVO” Air Jordans is one that’s made its way into the hands of some other famous folks connected with the man also known as Champagne Papi. Johnny Manziel for instance was also given a couple pairs, which shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise since we’ve heard about his affiliations with the OVO crew. Here the young man is seen showing off the gift-which includes both the white and the black pair of Jordan 10s from the set. Get the full photo below and then tell us in the comments which is your favorite of the OVO Jordans.

While the Baltimore Ravens may have taken home the ‘W’ on Super Bowl Sunday, we’re still gonna go ahead and say that the San Francisco 49ers have the better sneaker game out of the two squads. That goes for on-field as well thanks to the likes of Michael Crabtree, who showed up to the big game wearing a special version of the Air Jordan IX Low. Hit the jump with us for photos of the man also known as King Crab in his Air Jordan IX exclusives and let us know if you enjoyed the big game yesterday.
Apparently Michael Crabtree isn’t the only San Francisco 49er getting love from the likes of Jordan Brand. This recent shot of the NFC Champions has every player in sight dipped in the recent Air Jordan V white/fire red/black retro right before boarding the plane to New Orleans for their Super Bowl bid. Didn’t anyone tell them that they were a couple days late for the Air Jordan V day from the XX8 Days of Flight series?
I cant even lie the whole team looks swaggy in the Air Jordan Vs and the Jordan Gear. I wish i was a celebrity get all the exclusive picks on gear and kicks before they come out. Im sure in the next couple of years that will happen.
Remember last week when Nate Robinson brought out three different pairs of Air Jordan’s as a nice little tribute to his new home with the Chicago Bulls? That should let you know that he’s really not playing around when it comes to this sneaker stuff. Further evidence has just arrived in case you need a little more convincing, with Nate Robinson posting up these pictures of his Air Jordan and Nike Air Penny pairs. Stay with Sneaker News after the jump to get a full view of the racks he’s working with and let us know if you’re impressed by the pairs that Nate Robinson has tucked away.
