In this world, we often come across things that make little sense. No matter how much one racks their brain, they just don’t understand why it is the way it is. What are the kinds of things I am talking about? I am talking about people ponying up thousands of dollars just to have that special edition of something.
Now, this kind of thing occurs fairly frequently. It is quite astonishing how simple qualities of an object can compel a person to part with their hard earned dollars. Usually, these objects either come in limited numbers or they come with some kind of sentimental value attached to them.
What is the secret?
Let us talk about the first kind of objects. These objects are only released in limited quantities to ensure that they retain value. Not every rare thing may be worth a lot though. Sometimes, the rare something is, the less its value becomes. However, some general things such as a pair of shoes or a limited edition bag almost always gain some value.
The other thing is the sentimental value. Under sentimental value, the thing we need to pay our attention to is nostalgia. Nostalgia is a pleasant feeling experienced when an object triggers your past happy memories. However, once again, one must keep in mind that not everything with nostalgic value is valuable.
In fact, more often than not, these objects gain their value because they have some mixture of nostalgia and rarity going for them. While being one of the exclusive 50 to own something feels great, what feels even better is when that rare item is also something generally recognized by everyone but attainable only to you.
So, why am I discussing these things with you? Well, that is because I recently came across these super special pair of trainers.
These trainers were made by Nike in honor of the film Back to the future. These trainers named the Nike Air Mag Back To The Future BTTF are one of a kind. Only 89 of these were made. That was done in order to drive home the year of release of the film which was 1989.
What this does is elevate the shoes from the normal realm to the legendary realm. What does that mean? Well, that means that you can ask for 19,715 Euros as an asking price if you own of these.
So, what are you waiting for? Your shoe-rack calls for you!
