Haha some of them are pretty ugly now. Funny how fashions change. I think the earliest pic among this lot would be from 2005.

There's one or two more, but I haven't bothered taking pics of any for a while. I don't really buy fresh pairs more than once or twice a year these days.

;D

O_o?! WTF?! Seriously! Who needs that many shoes?!

I mean the Gundam Nike's are nice, but the rest?

I've got 1 pair of shoes. I won't subject you to a photo, since they're falling apart and I'll be buying a new pair with the money I'm getting soon.

Thats a very impressive collection Sonar

Damn thats a huge colection. How many are there?

My bro has about 15 pairs, including the $600 Tiffany Dunks.

I like to think I have a pair for each day of the month. Many of them I rarely wear now. I couldn't ever see myself buying any super rare expensive ones. I just get what I think looks nice.

kjasi, it's a collection. It doesn't have to be justified, it just is.

Gunny, I don't get it, but I'm sure it's derisive so I won't ask. :fyou:

I just think it's strange and unusual...

Still, it IS impressive.

wow, see thats what I love about collecting, it can be anything!!

I guess it becomes apparent what sheltered lives we all lead when we find out about someone's wierd collection. :D

Sneaker collecting is a multi million dollar industry. There are magazines and books dedicated to it and people that have been doing it for over 30 years. You can actually pay many hundreds of dollars and design your own custom colours at the Nike USA and Japan websites.

It is kind of interwoven with hip hop culture, or was initially, and you have expressed your distaste for hip hop before so that would be why it is so foreign to you.

hip hop you say??? hmm interesting, or it could be just your inner chick taking over and buying shoes :)

Yeah, Nike ID. YOu can make your own colouways for the shoes that Nike have on offer. Plus its something to do when youre bored.

And the Aussie sneaker collecting magazine is Sneaker Freaker, and their forum Sneaker Freaker Forum

Yes I can just see you walking down the street singing; "I'm a lumberjack, and I'm okay. I sleep all night and I work all day."

sonar thats a good looking collection mate! nikes are very popular here also in NZ but honestly NZ are very slow in everything, electronics, technology, fashion, thats what frustrates me most when i moved here. When i went to sydney all the cars had gps built in, not common in nz yet. I dont see anything strange or unusual with people collecting shoes, if you at least know a little about fashion you would have more than 1 pair of shoes, and your amount of collection is not overwhelming, i know someone who has like 50-70 pairs, but i only see him wearing 3 same pairs everytime. I rather see someone that not always wear the same thing 7days/week, that means their clothes are atleast clean... im honestly not that big of a fan of nikes, but some of yours do look cool, i dont have that much shoes, but i will take some pics and post em here.

Oh wow... just seen this thread - good to know that there's other sneakerheads here too. :D

I only collect Nike B-Ball kicks (mostly Air Jordans and other signature shoes).

I've cut down my collection substantially over the years, used to have something like 110 pairs (with 90%+ unworn in deadstock condition), but probably have something closer to like 30 or 40 nowadays.

Wow.. thats serious collecting. I just copped some new BW's today. Theyre on my fb page which you can find thru gundam australia's fb.

Post by: Vector Prime on November 27, 2011, 03:12:04 PM
Yeah, it was becoming a seriously expensive hobby.

Having said that though, I decided to whittle down the collection to only the 'essentials' so I sold most of it off on eBay or to private collectors and even walked away with a (overall) minor profit.

Nice J's.

I'll fix it and merge the topics. :)

Thanks for sharing.  ;D

FYI There's a maximum image width and if you exceed it it breaks the topic. Please resize first. :)

The Toro Bravo pack was a birthday pressie from my wife when they came out. I'm a ten and wear them sparingly so they're in really good nick. Hi tops don't really suit me and I'm thinking of downsizing a bit actually. I have a pair of Dunk hi's in exclusive ABC Mart Japan only colourway I'm keen to offload.
