No one really gives much thought about the basement. For most, it’s the one room where all the unused junk and heirlooms are stored. It’s a treasure trove of memorabilia so to speak.

But there are a few items in there that could fetch you some cash. Dust off the surfaces and prepare to get sweaty. It’s all going to be worth it in the end.

Athletic Shoes

There just might be a couple of 1972 Nike Waffle Racing Flat “Moon Shoes” stashed away in your basement.

In July, a pair sold for a whopping $475,500, becoming the most expensive sneakers ever auctioned.

But even if those old shoes aren’t worth money, they still have value if you donate them to an organization like Give Your Sole.
