Buying Guides
Dec 24, 2020
What drives us to collect kicks? For some people, they are enthusiastic about the prospect of having nicer kicks, while others are OG collectors who have been in the game for a long time and are strictly in it for the appreciation of history and the design greats that have graced the history of sneaker lore. Some have been brought in by the hype generated by the Kanye Yeezy era and the Virgil Off-White movement, which have captured the minds of new collectors and brought many new sneaker heads into the game. In any case, the biggest drive to collect more is a combination of hype releases and love for older releases that have a cool concept or point of historical reference.
