“I’ve been collecting kicks for a minute now. I love to collect all types of sneakers, not just the hyped on.
Like most collectors, as a kid we couldn’t afford expensive shoes. Growing up in the 80s and 90s, owning a pair of Nike‘s or any other popular sports brand was a big deal.
Its funny to watch how sneakers that were once easily obtained are now super hyped. A good example of this is the Dunk / SB Dunk hype situation that’s happening right now. I copped this pair (SB Dunk Cali High) back in 2014 or 2015 from the nike outlet for $60. These days they are selling for close to double retail!!!”
