So i just read a post of someone looking for a pair of 95-97 black airmax, and allthough there's no doubt it's a nice shoe it's going for like a kaswillion dollars.My question........is sneaker collecting for chumps or champs?Everyone does it (thus making it tre poofe), they are essentially a practical item (although shit looks mad swish), and kicks in hip hop history comes from hunger (ie: making pov shit look fly).......I've collected kicks on and off for nigh on fifteen years, back then if you could'nt rack em you'd roll em, and shit was impossible to get. Now every fucking conglom reissues and tweaks and sucks muthafucks right in.......and every monkey has a pair of AF1's.so? airflunk....actually these days I'm strictly stan

    i think it's just like any other thing that becomes popular. fuckers that have been doing it, have and will be doing it.

    but when you got every shoe from the Jordan line and exclusive deadstock 30pair in the world pink/turqoise colorway, and you got no game?

    Never saw the point of collecting shoes. I mean, they sit looking nice but if you wear them on the regular they'll get fucked up. I'd rather spend my cash on records.

    How do these normally run, sizewise? I wear a 10 - 10.5 in New Balance and my foot's a little wide. Should I buy larger, smaller or same?

    In my experience, these run small. I usually wear a 13-13.5, but the 14 is what I wear comfortably with the rod lavers. BTW, I hate the orange "exclusive colorway" that Zappo's adds.

    If anybody's buying shoes this weekend, there's a 30% discount for footaction, foot locker, or champs that runs until the 28th (Sunday).

  • I could never collect. I wear them too much and they end up looking like these.

    pegasus

    ease up. the pegs are mega light and durable (plus cheap). a good shoe if you run a lot and go through lots of pairs.
