Xin Yueshuai, a self professed fan of NBA legend Michael Jordan held an exhibition of his collection of more than 100 pairs of Nike Air Jordan sneakers in Shandong province's Qingdao on April 3, 2015.
Since owning his first pair of Air Jordan's in 2002, Xin has embarked on a shoe collection journey due to his fascination with Jordan. Now he boasts a room of more than 200 pairs of Air Jordan's from the first generation to the 20th, with each pair priced at over 1,000 yuan ($161). Some were bought when Xin was studying abroad. The most precious ones are well preserved in refrigerator-sized incubators with a temperature of 11 degrees, while others are packed in moister-barrier bags.
Jordan's fighting spirit as a basketball player has always inspired him, Xin said,"Jordan once said you can accept failure, but you can never accept failure without trying."
