Okay, so how exactly did Drake’s Air Jordan X (10) “OVO” and others make it to eBay? Well, a video has surfaced explaining the “How”.
According Yahoo Sports, the ultra limited edition edition sneakers were handed out during a Toronto Raptors-hosted “Drake Night” this past Saturday. As one of the sneakers have already fetched a whopping $100k asking price, there’s no telling if anyone will actually pay that much for an unsigned pair of sneakers. And while Drake is quite the guy these days, only Michael Jordan’s game worn and autographed Air Jordan XII (12) “Flu Game” kicks have actually sold for six figures.
But, here’s a bigger question: Is it only about the money? Does this mean that every time a celebrity figure gives a fan something of “significant value”, the stated item will only end up on eBay? Whatever happened to the days of actually holding on to something you yearned to possess? But then again, everyone’s situation and intentions are different, right?
The seller of the auction explains:
I received them from Drake himself at Drake night at the Raptors. Drake was seen wearing the same ones at the game that night.
Drake then tells another fan:
These are definitely not going to fit you…But hopefully you can give them to somebody or keep them as a keepsake.
Anyway, check out the video footage below and keep it here at Sneaker Files for more word on a possible OVO x Air Jordan release.
