Tatsuro NishimuraBefore sneaker collecting exploded from a niche hobby into a mainstream phenomenon, and before the proliferation of aftermarket boutiques and Instagram posts changed the “game” forever, it wasn’t so easy to get your favorite Air Jordans. If you missed out on their release, you were relegated to endless scouring of message boards and sneaker “groups,” trying — often without success — to unearth your grails. However, there was one place that in-the-know collectors could and would find the shoes they’d been lusting after: eBay. You see, eBay was (and still is) a veritable mecca of Air Jordans. Region-exclusive releases? Got ‘em. Collaborations? Check. OGs? On deck. No matter what you’re looking for, no matter how rare it might be, no matter where you reside, you can find the Jordan kicks you need on eBay. Although the game has indeed changed since those early days, that’s a fact that still rings entirely true today. Now, the Sneaker News team has partnered up with the online sneaker shopping icon to craft a carefully curated selection of our favorite Air Jordan footwear for you, our loyal readers.AIR JORDAN 4 Cool Grey
Air Jordan 6 Infrared
Air Jordan 11 Concord
AIR JORDAN RETRO
Shoes so nice, they had to release them twice.
Although there are certainly plenty of shoes from the Jumpman that stand out to us as we head into fall (the most welcoming season for dressing) there’s three that have specifically received our autumn stamp of approval, two of which are OG colorways and one of which is a non-OG colorway. It’s already obvious that none of the highlighted shoes are Air Jordan 1s, because despite the global embrace of the original, it was actually three other silhouettes that help build the house of the Retro.
