Showcase | My First Pre-Owned Sneaker In My Sneaker Collection (12/06/2019)



hello to my beautiful viewers out there today I'm gonna be doing an unboxing of my latest addition to my sneaker collection and what I want during this video is for you guys to try and guess what the pair of shoes are gonna be so if you know me well you're probably already guessing that's probably gonna be a pair of Jordan ones I'm not going to tell you if it isn't gonna be a pair of Jordan ones all right we're gonna have to unbox it to find out but remember this year I said I was kind of keen for the bred fours and the infrared sixes and various other shoes as well so you could be wrong in this case you know like maybe for once I finally changed it up maybe I finally bought a pair of well I already got a pair of sixes so maybe I finally bought a pair of fours maybe I bought my second pair of sixes we'll have to find out guys well after unboxing but without further ado let's start you know opening this up and I'll start debuting it but let's see if you can guess it okay that was actually surprisingly surprisingly easy that's kind of a scary thought that whoever packaged this did not package it very well but that's okay got here in one piece I hope so here it is did you guess what it was is it a pair of Jordan ones is it a pair of Jordan four sixes or maybe even pair of Jordans maybe it's something else well let's read out sad ah now you look at that you're like oh crap if you know your stuff this ain't a Jordan one box it's definitely out of Jordan one box check this off to the side and we'll get to it okay any ideas any ideas well you're all wrong if you guessed anything but a Jordan one it's totally incorrect but it's these bad boys here it's another pair of Jordan ones I know yeah of course of course Dan you got another pair of Jordan ones it is the Jordan 1 black toes so I know predictable me I'm sorry I got another pair of Jordan ones guys I couldn't help myself I'll explain why I got these over the next couple minutes but I was really really keen to get these once I saw these were available yes so I'm sorry if I'm squinting a little bit of the the cicada aroma coming from this box it's like someone sprayed it with a keeps of perfume or something and it's just like it's really hitting me right now but um yes oh yeah again but a pair of John ones sorry and I will get the fours one day I will get another pair for I will get a pair of Jordan for breads and some point this year I have to do it I have to I said I'm gonna do it I have to do it another pair of Jordan sixes that might be a while I'm not a huge fan of sixes I'm not really missing out on much by not getting the Sixers but to these to the bike toes if you've known me and my collecting habits for a while you've known that I want the bread toes for a lot sorry the black toes for a long time I also want the bread toes but I want the black I've been wanting the black toes for a while the black toes were a pair of Jordan bought it was a colorway of Jordan ones that came out with the original Jordan ones back in 1985 so the Jordan ones when they came out in 1985 it wasn't just the Chicago's or breads you know these boys the Chicago's and it wasn't just also the breads as well it's crazy how I've got both he's but again some of my favorite Jordan ones so yeah those two weren't the only original colorways to come out and they also weren't the only two colorways that he played in when he first played in the NBA he obviously played in the Chicago is the most and he obviously had a little bit of play time in the breads oh my god of one that sold out so badly just a bit of TLC right here obviously so yeah all the breads quite a bit but he also wore the black toes for a couple games as well he didn't wear them for a lot but this colorway here was made iconic and was made very desirable mainly because of the advertisement campaigns that happened around 1985 you know mid 1980s you may know the iconic photo shoot where he always wore the black toes hanging off his chest with the lace going over his shoulder unfortunately he was wearing red laces so if I wanted to like recreate the photo shoot or something like that unfortunately a guy who sold me the pair didn't have the spare laces anymore so I only got them with the black laces I could probably just use the red laces from my chicago's or breads but yeah the black toes for a lot of Jordan one collectors have been a must-have in their collections and a quite sought after they're quite hard to come by in all honesty and that's for many reasons that I'll go dive into right about now so the reason that these these bad boys have been really hard to find is from I think from what I know they've only been retro twice and I've explained what retro angle is before but I'll go over quickly if you just don't remember I just don't know our retro is when they bring back either a model or a colorway of a model from the past and they you know rejuvenate revitalize that we have new materials sometimes with new cushioning but usually they try and keep it the same as the original and as I was saying about these bad boys I think they've only been retro twice and I think that's in 2013 and then this model here in 2016 so you either bought them back in 1995 and kept them for like 20 years or you waited until the 2013 retro and then you got them in 2013 although from what I know the 2013 retro was kind of disappointing the quality of the 2013 retro the leather was kind of crap it just wasn't a very like obviously people very ecstatic that the black toes got red road but having it in horrible quality was kind of like just like a spit in the face when they actually bought it so I've heard the 2016 pair this pair here is a lot better than the 2013 pair and the reason that I bought these and bought these secondhand I think this might be yeah this might be this my first ever pair that I've bought secondhand worn every other pair that I've bought has been secondhand dead stock so dead stock meaning it's never been worn never been you know the laces have never been done up because when you buy a pair of Jordan ones the front part of the lace is the only part of the laces that's done up these aren't on up you've got to do them up yourselves ya know so this is my first pair that I've ever bought secondhand I bought this secondhand because one the guy was selling it for around about a hundred bucks I think it was around about 100 USD and he also had only worn them twice and like he explained it in the whole description he's like I've only ever worn these to the gym I never wore them twice I was a little bit insulted but I know that's such a stupid thing to be able to insulted by but just doesn't appreciate it as much because like when I saw that he's like I've only worn them twice and the only two times that I wore them were to the gym I was like really even they were the black toes to the gym and only twice and you want to get rid of them because you know I said I will not get rid of these I absolutely loved the black toes when I started to get into Jordan ones when my mate Dorian sadly get me in the Jordan ones he showed me the models that came out in 1985 you know the OG ones which ones I kind of liked I absolutely fell in love with the Chicago's I was like I must have these and then I saw the price on them and I was like nope I'm not having these same thing with the breads absolutely love this colorway saw the price was like no that obviously changed over the years because I eventually got up here but I'm really happy that they got both of them but then he showed me the black toes and I thought they were like the best colorway I'd ever seen like I don't know what just the simple change from I'll show you both shrank at the booth and the camera for you yeah that's them both so you've got black toe and you've got Chicago so similar the only difference is that it's got a black eye now normally I'd be quite picky about the whole idea that he didn't like give me the Jordan one box he gave me a different Jordan box he didn't give me any of the laces they're really worn but it was more about like the price and the fact that a pair of like large size 16 or 17 Jordan one black toes they just don't come up so often in the market the shoe is three years old now for the 2016 pair is three years old now and if the 2016 pair didn't come up for sale it would have been the 2013 pair so six years old so the likelihood of me finding the six year old pair or even the three year old pier is getting slimmer and slimmer as the years go by so it was really happy to be able to at least get the 2016 pair for like a really cheap price surprisingly it was quite a bidding war so I bought them on eBay right classic secondhand goods eBay of course I bought it from there there was quite a bidding war like I don't know what the hell's wrong with eBay but whenever I was bidding for it it said you've been outbid by someone who's bid before but it didn't tell me the latest bid price or the highest bid price I just had to keep bedding or bidding until my price was the highest price again it's still only came up to like 100 USD which I know some of you probably like screaming at me saying Daniel you're an absolute idiot why would you pay 100 USD for pre-owned shoes and like look in your perspective you're probably right I mean it all comes down to how do you see it I personally say this is actually quite a bit of a steal I'm really having to pay like 100 USD and it doesn't look to one like two times looks pretty good I say that I'm showing the right shoe because the left shoe actually looks a lot worse than the right shoe I'll get the left shoe up real quick but yeah okay so that toe box is a little bit squished here but I honestly don't care adds a little bit of character to it Jordan ones worn really nice I'm just really happy that I actually managed to get a pair of black toes honestly they've been on my list for ages to get they rarely appear on like goats and stock ex like untied if they appeared on goat or stock Eric's in used condition I'd probably buy them but they just don't appear on either of them very often so eBay came in with the save the stone round and I was actually able to get a pair through eBay so though I'm really happy with that obviously they're od I don't think there's been a pair of black toes that haven't been OG but yeah I'm really really happy that I got this one guys but what do you think of it what do you think the black toe do you think it was a stupid purchase that I bought it I personally I love the black – so let me know in the comments guys what do you think of the Jordan one black tights were they worth it are they a cool colour where I absolutely love them so this is where the snarky side of my Jordan collecting comes out they aren't technically og they are and they aren't so they're edgy branded which means that correct in that they don't have a jump man on the back they don't have a jump man on the tongue they have no care and all of that is exactly the same as the pair that came out in 1985 exactly the same only thing that is different from the 1985 pair from his iconic photo shoots from the pairs of the war on feet in games is that the tongue itself on the original pairs was black now I know this is such like a minor thing like I could probably just dye the tongue black if I really wanted it like that but to a lot of people that want the shoe exactly how it is in 1985 obviously that's kind of a big concern and with the black tongue I know this sounds like so stupid and people like me and it's just a black tongue though you essentially got exactly what you need well the black tongue with the red laces is exactly how it is in 1985 with all the photo shoots it looks better honestly I'll definitely get some photos up for you guys but a Jordan one black toe with a black tongue looks a lot better than a jerk like this with the white time and as you guys have probably already thought the black toe the black top a black toe looks exactly the same as the Chicago's but it just has a black toe box and that's exactly it I would like kind of like a little bit more variation by having a black tongue honestly I think they did a black tongue for the bread toes I'd have to look that up I don't have the bread toast unfortunately the difference between the bread toast and the black toes here's the black toe and the bread toe essentially just has a red toe box and that's instead of being white that's red yeah no I'd love to pick up the bread toes as well again you probably like thinking what the hell Daniel like that is just a slight variation to what you've got in your hand right now and I know well on all the Jordan ones that I have they're all just like slight variations in color from the rest of them but ya know I just really like the silhouette and having all these different colorways actually works with heaps of different outfits as well at the same time so I actually do really enjoy getting the different colorways wearing them with different outfits and yeah I'm just a big fan of the the silhouette it's just a really nice easy to wear shoe works on each of different levels and yeah it's a lot of fun honestly really good shoe here guys I get a pic get a pair of Jordans before you judging okay so I have to do like a little intermission heel and this is gonna be really out of the blue but I just I was just so just looking at the black toes that I got and it didn't actually say on the eBay page if they were 2013 or 2016 so I didn't know until I actually got them but I looked at the tongue and it said and it says 2012 to 2013 on them so even though I was bitching about the quality of the 2030 pairs I got a 2013 one so yeah I mean I'm happy it's the back to I'm happy but yep stuck with that 2013 quality and the 2016 quality yeah I also just realized that that actually makes it the oldest shoe in my collection this shoe by the end of this year it will be six years old and yeah Wow six years old pair of Jordan ones it's only been worn twice shows that there might be some drawn ones out there that I may be able to get that someone's probably never want and it's probably just sitting in someone's basement but uh yeah Wow six years old guys that's absolutely crazy holy crap so yeah guys that's it that's all I really good to say about them for the next year that I probably want to get in my list it's probably gonna be another Jordan one I'm not gonna lie there are a couple Jordan ones I mean I really want the Chaves ones the Travis ones I'd have to save up so much money for them but they're definitely a Grail they're definitely something that I really really want and the thing is is that if I ever want to buy a pair of John one's resale or retail the price is so much cheaper than like say like a Jordan for Jordan 6 any of the added s shoes in my size like any easy is like six times the price of a pair of a Jordan one and I'm probably gonna wear a Jordan one way more than I'm gonna wear it easy to be honest I just don't have the fits for like an easy fit really ya know I would definitely get the pair of the Jordan fours not gonna lie I reckon they would be absolutely sick to get but yeah next up would be next up I love a pair of the shadows I'd love a pair of the Jordan one shadows they came out in 1985 as well the resale is not too high on them there is also a pair of Jordan 2d cons on goat as well for like 100 USD wouldn't mind getting a pair of those as well they're really nice but yeah I'm sure at the moment it all depends on what's on sale and if I've got the money yeah yeah the other yeah but really happy I picked up these today guys and let me know in the comments what do you think of the Jordan ones what are you even doing on black toes and what do you think is the next nigger that I should definitely go for but thank you all for tuning in and until next time I'll catch you later
