How did you start it ? Where you planning on collecting shoes or just bought shoes that you liked

What was the first pairs you bought that started your collection?


Yeah and how long you have been collected

i'm far from a collection i think but i think people start by finding a shoe they absolutely love alot and cop a pair if not more, and that makes em start collecting, thats what i did. my first pair i really loved were the militarys, got stolen a year ago. fu*k whoever stole em.

Well if you wanna get really deep in it...my dad started it. he used to buy my shoes when i didnt have a job (i was young i couldnt get a job anyway i would say from age born - 11 he bought all my shoes) then my step dad bought me shoes as well until i got my first job and thats when i was 18...my first check i bought me some Air jordan Xi blk/red in a size 11.5 (i wear a 11) and i was not passin on them bi*ches...after that...it was a rap.

Almost every check i got i was buying shoes...sh*t i got paid every two weeks so the week i would get paid i a pair of jordans would come out...and i had connections because i worked at the mall at the time (northland mal at suns and suns too clothing who is now closed down due to slow business)

When i got out of school i was still coppin..i had close to 40 pair of shoes...at the time..i didnt know about a shoe game (but i did know about niketalk) and it was not that serious back then..one of my friends used to bash me on why i bought alot of shoes.

Then i made the biggest mistake ever...leaving your kicks at your family members house....soo many pair of my shoes got fu*ked up its crazy...hell i would say 3 years ago i lost all my shoes due to family members doing me grimey while i was in the process of moving some of the
Shoes i can remember losing were:

Air jordan Xi
OG air jordan XI playoff
Air jordan XII (low top blue, flint greys, frenches)
Air jordan VI blk.grey
Air jordan VI retro white and blue
Air jordan XI concord
Air jordan IX
Air jordan IX low blue and white
about 2 pair of forces (prym has a colorway i used to have)
one pair of timbs

and some more jays and shoes i could not remember

a year after that i got me a job and bounce back quick and started my collection with the melo 5.5's (they came out on my bday :) ) after that i've been coppin whenever i can.
