A new week means a new post for Collector of the Week here at The Art of Fatherhood. As a fellow geek and collector of all things Pop Culture I wanted to showcase some cool collections that dads share in our community. We love to see this passion in what people collect. In addition, we talk about the latest movies, sports memorabilia, an Air Jordan II collection and video games that we are enjoying at the moment.
This Week’s Collector – Air Jordan II Collection
This week’s collector is from me. I wanted to share part of my sneaker collection. This is my Air Jordan II collection.
Ever since I saw the Air Jordan IV in a sneaker store I become fascinated with sneakers. The 80’s and 90’s were two great decades for the sneaker industry. When I started collecting sneakers the Air Jordan II was hard to come by. Some say it was because the mold for the shoe was destroyed. After Nike re-retroed a few other Air Jordans they brought back the AJ II. I was able to get a few classic colorways. I even was sent by a PR company a sample edition of the AJ II. It is the dark blue one on the left. Nike even released a concept AJ II it is the one that is white and blue. This year seems to be a resurgence of the AJ II. I am glad to see others get to appreciate the shoe.
I hope you enjoyed my story and collection. Please email if you want your collection shared in this weekly column.
It can be comic books, bottle caps, records, helmets or whatever you are into! I want to see what your passion is and why you started up that collection. For me, I believe that in each collection lies a better story. I want to share your story! Feel free to reach out to me and share your collection.
