I doubt they need the money. But it is awesome that someone in the family is letting some of this moto memorabilia go.

A Stewart fan page selling Nike boots on Instagram? Seems legit

Those turquoise boots are fire

Probably a scam?

Someone would pay 3k plus for those boots

Yeah but luckily people like OP exist who can get them for a cool 600.

Selling his old gear online certainly isn't a good sign. Seems like most financially secure former athletes might auction them off to charity instead.

I don't know, he could just toss the shit in the trash. At some point in anyone's life them old trophy's don't mean shit and it's takin up space for new shit. Not every one lives for the glory days..

When you have two little ones some old Mx gear is the least of his concerns.

Considering the instagram page has a link to WheelieBoyAndrews youtube page of someone looping a YZ125, I would say it's a scam.

No one associated with the Stewart family runs that page.

The photos of the Nike boots were screenshotted from a Swapmoto Live post and the black/teal SG12's are available to the public now anyways.

How many of you have been contacted by a Nigerian Prince?

Judging by the comments in this thread I'm sure at least one person here has given their life savings to a Nigerian prince...

Maybe....James gave the gear to Malcolm to sell?

Unless Swap happened to sell his pair, I think it could be a scam. That picture was actually taken from the SML site.

It wasn't my life savings, that's ridiculous. I just wired him $15,000.00 to cover the cost of the lawyer's fees and the logistics to get the $6.2m released into my checking account. He said there is the standard 90 day cooling-off period so that means I should be seeing my inheritance any day now!

Looks like you two are the only ones dumb enough to believe this is really James selling his stuff.

This thread will probably get deleted and that’s unfortunate because this is HOF. Well done.

Unlikely anyone within the Stewart family are flogging stuff to raise a few hundred bucks for that Christmas goose.

Perhaps when the time comes they will donate to be auctioned off with the proceeds going somewhere worthy.

Haha, well I should have known better than to start a Stewart thread. It was 2am and I just saw it pop up on an insta story, thort the Nike boots were cool, but obviously way too cheap if they were ever in fact for sale.
Glad this post has brought a small amount of entertainment anyway.
If I can just get the Nigerian prince to refund me $600 of the $24800 I sent him. I hope the boots are still available.

They’re dirty, I know one forum member that would pay extra for that!

But this fake Stewart IG tricks people on here all the time. From the description of one of the videos posted by the kid that runs that Instagram page:

“I'm a 12 year old kid from GA who loves to pop wheelies and race dirtbikes”

Come on guys...

Me too! As soon as my money comes in I’m going to disappear in a cloud of hookers and blow!

They are the lightest and most advanced mx boots ever built. They have never been for sale. There are only a handful of pairs in existence - made especially for Dunge and Stew.. I think they are the ultimate moto memorabilia.

Ugly AF.
Stewart & Dunge used them because they got paid to.

I remember them being quite expensive to make, and not very durable.

Super cool though.
