air jordan sale - Meet the 17-Year-Old With the Best O.G. Air Jordan 1 Collection

The Air Jordan 1 wasn’t the first sneaker made by Nike, but it may be the most important. The partnership between Michael Jordan and the footwear brand from Oregon launched—?at least in America—?what we now refer to as “sneaker culture,” and no single shoe had a bigger role in that than the original pair of Jordans, first released in 1985.

The sneakers have since been re-issued in a plethora of colors and styles, but none are more prestigious than the first Jordans ever produced. There have been stories about people finding pairs, with yellowed soles and cracked leather, and holding onto them as their most-prized possession. But Dylan Ratner, a 17-year-old from Miami, has made a hobby out of collecting the original Air Jordan 1s, and he’s done an excellent job at it.

Dylan has amassed nearly every original and sample Air Jordan 1 from the line’s inception. He has other vintage Air Jordans,Adidas Yeezy Boost Sale too, but the 1s have his heart, and his collection would make even the most seasoned collector wide-eyed. Many wonder how he was able to procure such a priceless stash of shoes, especially since he’s not old enough to have ever watched Michael Jordan suit up in a Chicago Bulls uniform. This is how he did it.

How did you get into collecting vintage Air Jordans?
The vintage thing happened by accident. I was originally involved in newer releases, and I made a trade for a vintage pair. I became really interested in the history and the significance behind the older pairs, so it started from that. Then I began to buy and sell,air jordan sale focusing on vintage, and I amassed a collection.

How do you get your pairs?
Sometimes I get them online and through people I meet, connecting through Instagram and Facebook. I run a Facebook group called “What Did You Wear Today?” and we have 67,000 members at the moment. So, I’ve met a lot of people through there. There’s a lot of different outlets where I find pairs.

How difficult is it to get the sneakers?
With the 1s, it’s very difficult to find some of the more obscure pairs. It’s taken a lot of patience, and you need to just get lucky.
