I have a pair of Nikes that are rare and very worn in. I have the exact same pair still in the box new. When I checked a few sites it seems that people are paying £400+ for these shoes. I don't know whether to sell the new pair for £400+ and buy different shoes for cheaper and pocket the rest of the cash or, because these are my favourite shoes ever, keep and wear the new pair once my current ones get holes in. What would you do? I'm not poor but it's still a lot of money for a pair of trainers.

I'd sell the spare pair for just under £400, or maybe set that as the opening bid if you want to use eBay, then use that money for whatever

Absolutely priceless.
I wouldn't sell my favourite pair of heels for all the money in the world.

I'm guessing you only wear them for special occasions so they'll last a very long time? Perhaps a lifetime?

I'm on my 3rd pair of these trainers in 5 years. I wear them a lot.

Yes, they only get to go on outings a few times a year- if the weather is good.
Doubt that they will last a lifetime but I'm hoping they will survive for at least another decade.

I have the Jordan 1 Obsidians and they're literally so expensive on StockX and other sites. Absolutely love them though and wouldn't ever sell them

I sold a pair of limited edition converse that I had worn into the ground - there were holes in them, sweat stains, the fabric had frayed, the sole was completely worn through on both heels. Got $20.

That's the best bit, I bought them for £25 on sale. They were going for about $150 new on ebay. I don't know who bought them but I hope they bought them as a project rather than to sniff and rub on themselves with some weird shoe fetish.......:unsure:
