Radak: Headline only works in England.


And it doesn't even work there, because they'd read the headline as sayng "8,000 dollars" too.

Gee Chad, you ever hear all those stories about football players who lose all their money within a couple years of retiring because of stupid purchases?

Me neither.

Too bad Ochostinko can't travel to the future and witness the results of spending more than you earn.

You're implying he doesn't look at other former NFL players going... what am I saying? good point.

There's that word again! Why are things so heavy in the future present? Is there something wrong with the earth's gravitational pull?

S.A.S.Q.U.A.T.C.H.: Gee Chad, you ever hear all those stories about football players who lose all their money within a couple years of retiring because of stupid purchases?

Me neither.


My first thought as well. Of course it isn't like he wasn't making stupid purchases before. Like he'd put out a call to twitter or facebook followers that he was buying 250 people lunch at a certain place, or stuff like that.

I love the guy, he was a great player for my favorite team for a long time, but damn, dude, you gonna blow all that money sooner rather than later. Save some for the kids.

Well, to be fair, he ended his career with about 34 Million dollars or so and I don't think he ever went crazy with cars and a bunch of mansions. Even in a regular investment firm like Merryl Lynch, mostly invested in bonds but with some growth investments. He'd be looking at a regular salary of 850,000 a year on the dividends alone. Plus given that these shoes were for charity, means that he'll actually be able to write some of this off, and it keeps his name in the papers.

Pretty sure the dude will be ok. I might be wrong.

The article says that a pair of these went for a lot more at a charity event before. This pair was just bought at a shoe store.

/Love Chad on Twitter most of the time.
/Think he'll be alright; he probably got the $2000 off for tweeting about the shoes.

They were all originally for sale for charity. I think all of these are on the secondary market now. I think they had a pair on pawn stars last season.

From Nike's press release in 2011:

As indicated, the auction started last night at 11:30 PM, eastern standard time, and the reaction to the cause has been almost overwhelming. While most of the bids are hovering at or above the $4000 marker, there's at least one pair with a current bid of $8,200.

By the end of the auction the last pair was selling for almost $15,000. These aren't the self-lacing ones, either - those are coming out sometime in 2013 for wide release. The reason they weren't included with these is that all of these shoes were handmade by the same design studio that made the original prop pairs; and the makers had to cut, form and fit them off of specs that are almost 26 years old. If you're wondering "How'd they do that?": batteries and a spindle motor were the special effects used for the self-lacing shot.

All 15 charity pairs are also signed by Michael J. Fox, Robert Zemeckis and Christopher Lloyd.

Chad actually got a steal, to be honest. Wouldn't be surprised to see them in five-to-ten years going for $25,000 a pair.

Maybe he's actually living out some form of Brewster's Millions. Or delusionally believes so.
