Sneakerheads know eBay is the ultimate destination for new, vintage and hard-to-find kicks; it’s also the marketplace that the NBA’s most renowned sneaker collector, P.J. Tucker, has been using daily for years. To celebrate sneaker culture and the start of the NBA season, eBay has teamed-up with P.J. to share an in-depth look at his new sneaker loft and launch a selection of sneakers inspired by his own collection. Starting today, fans can hear from P.J. himself about how eBay has helped shape his ultra-impressive collection, then visit www.eBay.com/sneakers to cop similar looks.
“I started using eBay in junior high school to search for sneakers and I’ve been on it almost every day since — I love the thrill of the search,” P.J. said. “Apart from having the best inventory and rarest sneakers, especially in my size, one of my favorite parts of shopping on eBay is being able to talk to the sellers and have a real conversation. I’m excited to be able to share some of my favorite eBay picks with fans so they can add to their own collections.”
Inspo from the Sneaker King
Debuting on eBay’s YouTube channel, the new video follows P.J. as he highlights some of his all-time favorite eBay scores and details his quest to track down super rare pairs. Some of his best eBay finds are the Air Jordan 9 Bin 23 in Gold, Air Force 1 Craig Sager, SB Chunky Dunky, Lebron 8 SVSM, Air Max 1 Chlorophyll, among others.
“eBay’s sneakerhead community is one of our most passionate, and P.J. Tucker epitomizes that passion; we couldn’t miss the opportunity to share with fans an inside-look at his new Sneaker Loft and share this perspective with other collectors on the marketplace,” said Mark Flaa, GM of Sneakers, eBay North America. “Not only can fans hear about some of his best scores on eBay, but they’ll have the chance to shop some of those favorites to add to their own collection.”
