The person with the rarest collection of Air Jordan kicks in the world, might be Gerard Starkey from London, UK — and sometimes he uses them to skateboard. Recently the folks over at Highsnobiety profiled him in an ongoing piece, celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan brand.
“As a member of the super elite Player Exclusives community, Gerard has built up a jaw-dropping selection of shoes signed and worn by Michael Jordan himself, some of which cannot be found in any other collection on Earth. Having begun his love affair with the brand as a young child, the sneaker super-fan was first drawn to the iconic Jordan 6 “Infrared” – a shoe he used to skateboard in, rather than shoot hoops. As the years went on, Jordans became the only skate shoe for Gerard.”
He might have the most expensive nollie kickflips of all-time too.
