It’s no secret that celebrities have some truly envy-inspiring sneaker plugs, but what if we told you that the guitarist of a hard rock band has one of the very best connects in the game?
Zach Myers, guitarist for Shinedown and longtime sneakerhead, showed off an unreal Air Jordan haul following a visit to Nike’s world headquarters in Beaverton, Ore. Myers managed to pick up both the unreleased “Red Suede” and “Green Suede” Air Jordan VIs made for Macklemore, along with the recently unveiled Air Jordan III and VIII set Kobe Bryant PE pack.
Just to give this some perspective, Kobe’s PEs were only available as part of a commemorative run of Air Jordans 1 through 30 which sold on eBay for an astonishing $240,100. Although the PEs are rumored to see an eventual release, Myers is one of the only people known to have them now. How’s that for #teamearly?
