I admired sneakers even when I was still a kid, but I started collecting my pairs after joining a sneaker group on one of the social media platforms. Fell in love with the "Chicago" colorway, actually, but I saw a 2016 Air Jordan 1 High "Bred" for a fair price then.
I'm kind of a late bloomer when it comes to sneaker culture/fashion, but it was the time when the Air Jordan 1 High hype resonated with me. It's different when you see a classic pair and colorway up close.
The excitement when you're about to do that sniff test upon opening the box first, lol! Plus, I love taking pictures of my sneakers, which also adds to the thrill.
I love what Uniqlo x Kaws did with their collaboration. Prints are there but still look minimalist to my eyes. If that makes sense, the eyes go back to the shoes you're wearing.
To be honest, I'm overwhelmed with collaborations right now. I couldn't think of anything, LOL.
Most of the shoes in my rotation are the Air Jordan 1 Highs, 2015 Chicago, 2016 Bred and SBB 2.0, Top 3, and 2017 Wheat. I also got one Jordan 5 Fire Red, which is a beauty. And a couple of low-top sneakers.
My grail pair is the one I have right now, the Chicago 1s. I'm not trying to acquire one, but a 1985 pair would be dope! I will probably spam my IG feed with that pair for a month!
None as of now.
