A couple people asked me to write more about my sneakers since I kicked off this year long blog resolution. So, here goes…For the last 15–20 years I’ve amassed an enormous sneaker collection. Before I say anything else, I don’t suggest it. Don’t do it. It’s not worth it. That said, I really do love sneakers and more so, the people they’ve connected me to that I would have never met otherwise.
While I’m ecstatic about the move I am in the midst of making, I am moving into a smaller house. That means, I’m back to having a large portion of my sneakers in storage for the time being. There are good and bad things about that, which I will get into shortly. My addiction to sneakers runs deep and I wouldn’t have it any other way (at least for now). Shout out to my fellow #sneakerholics out there who can understand.
I don’t collect at the same velocity that I once did but that doesn’t mean I don’t pick up an unhealthy amount of kicks on a regular basis. My approach to collecting isn’t typical compared to my fellow sneakerheads. I don’t have a ton of Air Jordans like a lot of people do. I’m probably under 60 pairs of Jordans. I don’t collect crazy valuable player exclusives, though I do have a few dozen obscure player editions that many people wouldn’t think twice about. I’ve always approached sneaker collecting as a talking point with other people in the footwear industry.
To be continued…
Damn, falling asleep and writing doesn’t mix well. Thanks to @wattznext for giving me the heads up on it
