Monopoly shoes are a relatively new phenomenon that raise an issue for Monopoly collectors everywhere.
How do you collect Monopoly shoes?!
Do you keep them in the box? I mean, you COULD, but future prices are unlikely to be affected by the condition of a boring shoe box.
They would have to be kept in perfect condition to have collectible value, so a shoebox or similar would make sense.
But does it make ANY sense to buy yourself a lovely pair of running, basketball or tennis shoes and stick them in the closet for 30 years in the hope they gain in value?
Surely you should wear and enjoy them. Get out there in the open air and proudly sport your Monopoly footwear for your friends to see and envy.
Of course, that would mean going outside. Which would mean not playing Monopoly for a while. Scary thought.
