For some Nintendo fans, anything labeled with the company’s signature logo or inspired by one of its products becomes an instant must-have.
One such item is a new pair of Nintendo-themed Nike Jordan IVs from a company called Freak Sneaks, which specializes in creating custom shoes. It’s inspired by the classic Nintendo Entertainment System game console color scheme.
The custom shoes also feature the console’s controller buttons in the back of the shoes, which the company claims can be pressed.
There will only be 10 pairs available of the Jordan “Nes” IVand the price for a pair is set at $1,250 (about P63,000). It’s a steep price tag for a custom item, considering a standard Air Jordan 4 Retro from the Nike store is listed at $139.97 (about P7,000).
On the other hand, resell value for certain color themes of the Air Jordan 4 Retro can go up to around $900 (roughly P45,500). Add that to the limited run of the Jordan “Nes” IV,plus the extensive customization, and the asking price starts to look reasonable.
Freak Sneaks also released the Jordan “Us Super Nintendo” IV NBA Jam Edition which has the same price and is still in stock.
If you’re a big Nintendo fan and still have cash to spare after buying Switch plus games and accessories, this could be a good addition to the collection. JB
