    $80,000 for one of his shoes? I don't think there's any badminton fan out there crazy enough for that. I wonder who much is his racket going for if one of his shoes is going for $80,000?

    LD can have earn more by selling his shoes than winning a SS.

    Maybe he should've signed them or made them unique somehow, before he threw them. xD

    At least the guy who caught the racket was caught on camera. So he has proof.

    As the guys who got the shoes, they probably smell. That is why they want to sell it Plus, what is the point of wearing one shoe. I know, I know. But this is a good one.

    If the person bought the same model, and wore the missing shoe, that would work, except they'd need to consider making sure they knew which one was the one from Lin Dan.

    That'd be overdoing it a bit and would be expensive. We don't even know if the person who received it is really selling it.

    Lindan does uses a white tape over his racket. It does make the racket heavier and not for the looks purposes.

    who knows. Good ol' Billy Gates has apparently become a badminton fan. even after his retirement, $80000 is still not life-changing.
