    old track shoe value
    #1
    Wasn't sure where to post this.
    If I'm in the wrong spot, mods, please feel free to move this to where ever it should be.

    So I was just curious....somewhere, I still have my old track shoes.
    A pair of Puma's and a Pair of Nike's, both from 1979.
    The Puma's are whitish silver and the Nike's are red.
    I used these when I ran track in high school.
    I'm thinking the Nike's might have some value, but what about the Puma's?
    ...or maybe its a case of me paying you to take them?

    How is the market these days?

    I still have have a pair of Adidas Sprints from 1977. Can't be worth anything more than personal nostalgia and doubt they would hold up to any use now. A brand new unused pair in the original box might be a different story.

    I still have my Tiger Spartan B spikes from 1978. Those and a nickel will probably get me a dime.

    Im looking for the pair that Ray Ewry wore over a century ago. I want to wear the shoes that the greatest athlete of the modern era wore.

    Guy that lived in my hometown growing up auctioned off his prototype Nike Waffle Racers from 1972. They went for $11,200. Here is the eBay site for it.

    Here is more detail from when they went up to auction:

    Jim Fixx famously wore the red Tigers for the cover of the Complete Book of Running.

    He donated them to a charitable action a few years later. The guy who bought them recently re-auctioned them on ebay.

    I still have a pair myself, in blue.
