This thread reminds me of when I used to where my original
Air Jordans around during my mid to late '90s college years, and several times people actually offered me a good chunk of money for them - from $100 up to $150.

They were the original Air Jordans and people wanted them regardless! Despite how badly I could've used the extra money in college, I decided to just hang on to them due to the nostalgia factor.
