"If you look at the trajectory of the values of these items, the collectability, the consumer interest—both from the Nike Blazer Low Femme core collector base that's been around for years, but also international, mass-market consumption of these products—it's just something that's been consistently evolving for quite some time," says John McPheters, co-founder and co-CEO of Stadium Goods.
