    Wassup NT, I'm 21 and currently live in the Bronx, NY. A few months ago I started roaming into the Sneaker Showcase section. I seen some amazingcollections and got inspired. I don't really know much about Nike Dunks or SB's so I figured I would start to really collect some Jays. Yes, anotherJordan post, lol. My goal was to collect 1-23. As of November 1, 2008, I had only 9 pairs of Jays. Old Love New Love 1s, Aqua 8, Playoff 8, Orange 8, 10/13CDP, Flint 13, & Chunty 20s. EVERY other pair was purchased between 11/08 - 2/09. I dont have much heat but im posting the shoes I really like. Ill giveyou guys a brief story on how I came across these kicks.

    Old Love New Love 1s. I got these maybe a month after the release. I walked into Footlocker in the mall and started talkin to one of the reps. He tried toget me to buy them but I told him they werent worth $200 to me. With no problem he gave me 20% off w/ no tax. $160 out the door.

    Orange Max 1s. Ok now for these I just walked into my local sneaker spot on 2/6/09 and they were just sitting on the wall. $100 flat.

    CDP 3s. Got these from Jimmy Jazz around the way. They werent selling so they went on sale for $209.99 for the package.

    Military 4s. Won these on eBAY for $76. Got them in the mail and found out they're B-Grade SMH. Cant find a flaw so ill still rock em.

    White/Metallic 4s. Walk into a local spot around here last month and they still had one pair, $40. One shoe was the display so the netting is slightlyoff-white but for $40 I couldnt pass it up.

    Navy Retro 6s. Funny story about these. Got these from eBAY this month. The seller had a $279.99 But-It-Now +$35 shipping. I sent a Best Offer of $190 +shipping. The seller sent back an offer of $265 shipped. Somewhere during the shipping process the sole on the left shoe was damaged. I emailed the seller apic, he apologized and refunded back $80 and next time shipping is on the house. End price: $185 shipped [​IMG]

    My god, in that span your collection grew like that? Wow, props

    Are the CDP III's still available? Seeing how you got yours for that price, I'm considering a pair!

    nice stuff

    Yeah I know they still have pairs but im not sure of the sizes. If you live in NY, I got em from the Jimmy Jazz on White Plains Rd across thestreet from Toys R' Us.
    I WISH! lol. I actually sold them last summer. There was a problem with my PayPal because of a flaking buyer (long story), but I sold those toclear everything up. Im sure ill come across them again in the future.
