Only Someone With The Name 'Jordan Michael (Geller)' Can Own The Biggest Nike Shoe Collection In The World
Think of how many tooth brushes this guy goes through to clean his shoes. I've seen posts and articles on this guy but only learned about his story yesterday while watching a YouTube video on Sneaker Watch.
He amazes me. His incredible shoe collection is only part of the reason why he is so interesting. He was a student in Law school who randomly came across someone at a flea market selling a bunch of sneakers for dirt cheap. He took every last penny to his name and bought the whole lot which averaged to about $15 a pair. He then sold them for around $45-80 a pair or something like that. That instantly peeked his interest from the business side and from that point, he would hunt down pair by pair and flip them and eventually ended up with a warehouse full of shoes to sell which amounted to over a million dollars worth of Nikes. You can watch the whole story below which is definitely worth watching. What really got me about his story was the transformation from focusing on the business side of things and seeing these shoes as profits, to turning everything into fulfilling his childhood dreams. I mean these items on his childhood dream checklist aren't like "be an astronaut" or "solve world hunger" but rather it was stuff like "own every garbage pale kid card" and "buy a Ford Bronco", and so on. It just so happened that apart of that checklist was to fulfill his passion for Nike sneakers. He took a passion and regardless of money, he ran with it. And because of that, he probably has the money follow him. Money is just the by-product of him living through his passion. Just as there is this 1% statistic of the richest people in the world, I believe there is a very small percentage of people out there that are doing and living off of something they love and he is definitely in that tier. I hope to meet him one day.. So I could see this Garbage Pale Kids card collection of course. (watch his story just below and a tour of the Shoezeum below that.)
