They were a men's size 9. I tried them on, but they made my feet look big, so I decided to sell them. The soles were a bit yellow, and I wasn't sure if anyone would be interested in purchasing them, so I let them sit and sit and sit. They sat in a garbage bag in the garage for at least two years.
A few hours before the shoes ended, a guy from France sent me a frantic email saying that eBay wasn't allowing him to place a bid on my listing. He wanted me to help him, but there was nothing I could do because the auction was about to end. He said he was willing to pay $115 + shipping. He claimed to be a collector of the "Bruin" period Nikes.
I didn't really take his email seriously. Who would pay over $100 for a pair of old Nike tennis shoes with yellowing soles? Besides, the guy's email looked like a ransom note. He wrote in all caps and used a ton of exclamation marks. To tell you the truth, I thought I was dealing with a scam artist. LOL
Have a great weekend!
