Being a Sneakerhead is fun and unfortunately expensive hobby or a style choice. I am a Sneakerhead.
I have been one for many years, I can’t even count the pairs of shoes that I have. I have always used it as a style choice, I normally wear plain fitted shirts and jeans or joggers but then a wild pair of shoes. Of course the colors have to match as well, my slight OCD.
Being a Sneakerhead is a lifestyle, it means if you can’t buy them for retail price or the day that they drop, then you save and pay a premium at a site like GOAT or StockX or buying them off eBay. I have bought used pairs because it was an older pair or one that they don’t make anymore.
I am really into Chuck Taylors, I have quite a few pairs of those. Then I got heavy into Nike’s so I have quite a few of those. Recently I have gotten into Jordan’s and that has been a whole other animal.
It’s just another hobby to go along with my tech obsession. One that I don’t see myself giving up anytime soon.
