Imagine you're patiently waiting for your latest pair of Air Jordan 1s to arrive in the post, the packages arrives, you open the box and flip the lid... only to discover some tired factory workers dun goofed and accidentally stitched your Swoosh on upside down! Now, if you're a perfectionist, you'd probably be racing to call Nike customer support and send back your dud goods ASAP. However, some 'unlucky' collectors are able to see treasure, when others see trash.
Earlier in the year, we saw one such pair of factory-flawed 'Gold Toe' Jays sell for close to six-figures, and now a messed-up pair of 'Reverse Shattered Backboards' has appeared with an even higher asking price. Italian consignment store Dropout Milan have announced that they will soon be listing the irregular kicks with a staggering asking price of €125,000!
