Nike releases new sneakers every year. Each wave of sneakers sells hundreds of thousands of units to people across the country. Older, discontinued and out of production sneakers have become collectors' items. If you want to get your hands on discontinued Nike shoes as a collector or because you like the fit and comfort of a particular model, there are several resources to try.
Shop for discontinued Nike shoes at an online auction house like eBay. Online auction houses are Internet hubs for anything collectible, ranging from stamps, to comic books, to antiques and including shoes. If you know the series number or release year for a pair of discontinued Nike shoes, type that information into the "Search" box to view all related available auctions.
Shop at a Nike Outlet store if you're looking for recently discontinued shoes. When new models are released and begin to appear in regular Nike stores, discontinued shoes and models from the previous year become available at Nike Outlet stores. Use the Nike Outlet store locator at Factory Outlet Stores (factoryoutletstores.info) to find an outlet store near you.
Browse through the listings at online collectors stores dedicated to the series of discontinued Nike shoes you are trying to find. For example, if you are looking for a classic series of Nike's signature Air Jordan series, you could shop at an online specialty store like 23isBack.com or FlightClubNY.com.
