what the sb dunk entire set A Complete Set of the Nike SB What The Dunk by The ShoeZeum

The “What The” craze currently hovering over Nike Basketball is credited towards this insane Nike SB Dunk release from 2007. Owning a single pair of What The Dunks is an incredible feat for a collector, but that’s just child’s play compared to what Jordan Geller’s ShoeZeum holds. Not only does he own three pairs of the mash-up Dunks, his collection also features every single Nike SB Dunk release that contributed to the What The concept. His latest video shows off the entire set (if you remember out first trip to the ShoeZeum in 2011, he said he was a few pairs short of completing the set) while pointing out some errors made in a What The breakdown by a sneaker magazine. Check out the ShoeZeum’s full video below because you’ll never see all this SB heat in one spot, and get a look at what the What The Dunks are going for on eBay.

One of the more engaging stories in the sneaker community over the last two years was the emergence of the ShoeZeum that was owned, operated, and curated by Jordan Geller – one of the most enthusiastic sneaker collectors ever to lace up a pair of shoes. Sneaker News had the fortunate opportunity to not only break the ShoeZeum story wide open in 2011, but also to be at the grand opening of the ShoeZeum Las Vegas in August of 2012; creating a near-complete sneaker collection filled with the most amazing heat on the planet and having it available for public viewing is a feat that no other person in the world might have been able to accomplish, but Jordan has put a lot of time, work and money into this, and after an impressive run, he’s ready to move on to a new chapter.

Beginning last night, Jordan is putting almost the entire ShoeZeum collection up for grabs on eBay, listing either 9, 23, or 45 different individual items per day. That gives sneaker collectors a rare chance to purchase some of the most sought-after shoes on the planet, and with every single auction starting off at $0.99, it’s anyone’s game – and who knows, you might even cop a steal! This might be the biggest auction event in sneaker collection history and there will be without question some serious heat up for grabs, so check out some of the major highlights that just went up for bidding and keep an eye out for more gems popping up daily in Jordan Geller’s eBay store – shoezeum on eBay.

The ShoeZeum Moves To A New City

sneaker news goes inside the shoezeum 3 The ShoeZeum Moves To A New City

In early 2011, Sneaker News stumbled upon a cluster of impressive eBay listings put together by an unknown individual known only by his eBay handle ‘Sneaks Kicks’. As the excitement began to mount around his incredible collection of listings, Sneaker News felt compelled to explore the true depths of this amazing collection of sneakers. We flew out to San Diego and was greeted by Jordan Geller, the owner and curator of what he called the ‘ShoeZeum’, and we were treated to a jaw-dropping tour of what is likely one of the greatest accumulations of leather and laces in the game’s history; beyond the mere accumulation of sneakers were categorized exhibits inspired by his own upbringing, with all of the exhibit props and trinkets fully stocked from purchases and trades from local swap-meets.

Not long after Sneaker News provided the first and only in-depth tour of the ShoeZeum, the entire sneaker world and even local and national news outlets picked up the story; Jordan Geller and ‘ShoeZeum’ had become household names and some of Nike’s highest brass, like Mark Parker and Tinker Hatfield, took the trip down to San Diego themselves – and even they were impressed at the pure Nike-driven passion. Geller even auctioned off personal Willy Wonka-style tours to the ShoeZeum (with all generated profits going straight to the Livestrong charity). Unfortunately, the ShoeZeum had to be temporarily closed and the massive sneaker collection piled into a storage space, but we’ve received some great news from Jordan himself: the ShoeZeum will be re-opening in the near future at a new location in Las Vegas. We’ll keep you updated on this progress of this grand re-opening and you can bet the farm the he’s grown his collection considerably since we were there almost a year and a half ago, so check out the amazing video of Jordan disassembling the ShoeZeum pair by pair, as well as a look at the apartment that housed the collection while it awaits the future Las Vegas location!

ShoeZeum Golden Ticket Tour Recap

May 23rd, 2011 by | 24 comments

shoezeum tour 5 21 22 ShoeZeum Golden Ticket Tour Recap

Arguably one of the biggest sneaker stories of 2011 began when Sneaker News reported some interesting eBay auctions that featured massive groupings of Air Jordans, Nike SBs, and Air Max Runners at eyebrow-raising prices. It was clear that the man behind these controversial listings had a lot more in store, so the Sneaker News staff flew out to San Diego to get a firsthand look at the ‘million dollar collection’; what followed was a huge media blast for Jordan Geller – the curator of the ShoeZeum – as his collection was soon visited by some VIP guests and was featured on local news on both paper and on-screen. More internet attention soon followed from others, and Jordan put the cherry on top of this amazing ride by auctioning off five ‘Golden Ticket Tours‘ on eBay, in which winning bidders would get an exclusive tour of his ShoeZeum (with all proceeds going to the LIVESTRONG charity).

May 21st was the date to circle for the lucky winners (two of which were Brandon Renken and Lindsay Manford of  ’I Do’ Bespoke fame), who received a 2,000-pair chronological breakdown, as well as a neat surprise in the form of a DIY paint-splatter Dunk session. Other notable guests of the tour included Michael Leming, Chief Talent Scout at Nike, and Guinness, Jordan Geller’s ‘fierce’ King Charles Cavalier Spaniel, and loyal companion. If you were unable to win a golden ticket and get out to San Diego on your own, Sneaker News already covered all of the ShoeZeum goodness in our thorough feature from March/April, which you can recap here. Check out a gallery of photos after the jump for a visual overview of the ShoeZeum Golden Ticket Tour.
