    Hi - just popping in. Some buddies and I were discussing people who collect and buy sneakers/shoes obsessively and kept coming back to “why”?

    Perhaps an article or brief synopsis? We/I don’t get it

    The same reason anybody buys/collects anything. They like them.

    I like shoes. I’ve always been a sneaker person even when I was a kid. I always had to go to the mall to see what new sneakers were out and had to have all the new Jordan’s. That just transitioned into adulthood where I’m the same way. I’ll see a pair I like and obsess over them to the point of just looking at google images of the shoes on feet and then I’ll have to buy them because I want them even if I only wear them a couple of times. It’s a hobby.

    It’s more than just like them. I like a ton of shoes but I’ll see a pair and I’ll flat out obsess over them and have to have them.

    i started collecting more seriously when i realized it got me girls

    after that it became about the community

    the internet wasn’t what it is now so meeting people and getting out to the shops and boutiques helped me meet some lifelong friends

    now it’s turned into something for my sons to grow into

    Since I was a kid I loved Jordans and loved how they looked but then in high school/college/20s I couldn’t afford what I liked, now I can buy any shoe I want anytime so I’m making up for lost time and I wear sneakers everyday at work and outside of work. My coworkers always want to see which pair I’m wearing and I got some friends back into it now and made some great friends in the community

    Mostly nostalgia for me. I loved shoes as a kid amd teenager, got away for a while, now I enjoy it again. I love getting a pair, like say the Metallic 5s, and showing my mom. She then goes on an hour long story about how she camped 3 days the snow to get me that pair when I was 12. Her knowing how much it means to me even now is awesome.

    And I'm sure you do stuff that I wouldn't get and that's ok.

    My sneaker obsession

    Played hoops / football as a kid / teen

    MJ was my guy, naturally sneakers a big part of it and I eventually branched out to new styles / brands. My cleats for football every year we’re a big deal to me.

    Now an adult with disposable income.

    Btw it helps my wife encourages it, she likes her own sneakers now and thinks it really weird if I’m not wearing a nice pair of sneakers

    My wife has 2 pairs of Yeezys, 3 pairs of ultra boosts and hurraches. I created a monster. She bought me the mauve 700’s out of nowhere just because I had mentioned I really liked them.

    We went out with friends on Friday night. My wife specifically wore Parras bc she knew one of the guys we were going to see out wanted them bad. :laugh: She said it was a coincidence but I know better.

    Dad is a PE teacher/coach so grew up watching and playing all sports. Sneaker fascination began once I was old enough to make decisions on what type of boots/sneakers/cleats I could get for the new season. Never was able to get the best of the best, always bargain shopping. When you spend a lot of time looking at eastbays and sharpie-ing your favorites you start to be more observant of what everyone around you is wearing. There is something about being complimented about your sneakers that is hard to quantify as well

    This is no bullshit, I remember it vividly. I used to suck my thumb hard when I was a little kid and my mom promised me to buy me any pair of shoes I wanted at the beginning of 2nd grade. Been hooked on sneakers ever since.

    Glad she gave in, that shit was getting gross.

    Finally had to put some shoes in storage. My shoe room had gotten out of control. I may be taking a job that has me working from home soon too so I'd need to make room for an office in that room. I cut it down to about 70 pairs in my room, just what could fit on my shelves, and took the rest to storage.

    It was something similar to a Nike Air trainer. They were black high tops with the word “force” across the tongue. Early 90’s. Good times.

    Honestly idk. Never counted. I don't want to count lol. I just know I have 2 4x4 cubes, so 16 slots each, and each slot holds 2 pairs. So that's 64 pairs. I have a 2nd one that's 4x2 so that's 16 pairs. So I guess it's 80 pairs left in my room.

    Ahh just saw they were designed by Eric Avar.

    Avar is responsible for the Nike Air Max Penny line, the Foamposite One, the Nike Kobe line, the Zoom Flight 98 “The Glove”, Nike Shake Ndestrukt and the original Hyperdunk.

    I got he notification that it was open, thought about it for a minute, but then just let it go. I liked them but anything atleast $100 over retail and i would have just sold them. None of them come close to touching the OG pigeons to me. Id love to have a pair of them.

    Mid December my buddy with the absurd collection decided he was going to sell some of his dunks bc of the hype around them right now. He had 3 full City Pack (NYC Pigeon, Paris, London, Tokyo) plus 3 more Pigeons. Most were size 11 but a couple were 10.5. He sold 2 Pigeons on Stockx for $9000 and $9500. About a week later he got a call from Dre, the guy that owns Project Blitz. He was looking for a Paris for a celeb client. They went back and forth and settled on $14,500. A week later Travis Scott popped up with Paris Dunks lol. He then listed a pair of Pigeons on Stockx as a "year right" price at $15k. He figured someone would eventually make an offer but never thought they'd sell at that number. He was wrong. On the day after Xmas someone bought them for $15k. He was kicking himself for selling two at $9000 and $9500 lol. $48,000 for 4 pair of fucking shoes. He then had a $4500 sale for a pair of Reese Forbes denims for $4500. Just insane like 3 weeks for him.

    had early access to a preorder for the adapts, but I’m not dropping 350 for them (or any shoe, really)

    will eventually get a pair as the price point continues to drop
