It's time for another look at some top picks from the sneaker market on eBay. This week has the usual great sneaker finds, including possibly the coolest shoe related hat ever. Of course we'll also take a look at some fakes, and be prepared because they are extremely bad!
Gary Payton PE Air Jordan XII
As with a lot of the Top Picks, the price is way out of most of our budgets, but these Gary Payton PE XII's are definitely a pair of shoes any Jordan collector would love to have in their collection. From Gary's days with the Lakers, they come in white and Laker-gold with "20" and "The Glove" on the heels. Beautiful!
Obscure Game Worn Shoe of the Week
Karl Malone's LA Gear
Unfortunately the auction is for only one shoe, but still cool nonetheless. For $309 you can own Karl Malone's, giant LA Gear signature shoe complete with his signature. Check it out HERE.
Vintage Deadstock of the Week
Nike Air Pegasus '95
Here we have a deadstock pair of the Nike Air Pegasus from 1995 in pristine condition. The '95 Pegasus is an underrated and forgotten design in the long line of Pegasus runners. This pair in "Mystic Teal" is a particularly dope colorway. The Pegasus '95 might just hold a special place in my heart because I had a pair in middle school. Too bad I'm not a size 8 anymore.
Hat of the Week
adidas Dikembe Mutombo Hat
Forget your overpriced Supreme five panel, this adidas Dikembe Mutombo hat may just be the coolest hat of all time. Produced during the time of Mutombo's first adidas signature shoe, this suede five panel cap features his logo and afrocentric patterns on the sides. Anybody can feel free to buy this for me HERE.
Fakes of the Week
Snakeskin/Laser Air Jordan XI
Here we have some snakeskin AND lasered Air Jordan XI's, complete with yellowed sole and no laces. The poor seller who found them at a thrift store should have left them there. The worst part is, they already have two bids.
