While picking up my pair at Champs dude in front of me in line had to be every bit of at least 58 years old. Jersey on, hat to the back picking up his pair. Even chopped it up with him a bit about how I need them to bring out a few pairs so I can inspect my pair first due to poor JB quality control. He agreed and says he sometimes does the same. My point is I guess it really never ends.

I see myself just burning my hard earned money away that I work so hard for that could be put aside in a money market acct or some kind of stock at Charles Schwab. Bred 11s will be my last pair. I spend over $5K a year on shoes, on myself and the family. Too much money burned.
I’m here trying to save for a ring. My girl fortunately gets it but I know inside she’s like “all these damn shoes and I haven’t got a ring yet” :lol:

The white dura edges really make such a difference it’s heart breaking .. if it had that it would personally be so much easier to overlook some of the other flaws. Joints were OD og looking in those IG pics .. not something I could personally do. If it isn’t as easy as adding holes to them FP Grape V’s I don’t trust myself.

Jesus. I don’t have any of my pairs in hand yet, but all the pictures makes me want a 4th. Smh. Can’t wait, straight to feet and for the whole month minimum.

I can’t quit. This is a forever thing
I wish I could.

Like I don't remember what it was like to not care about my shoes and to just grab a whatever pair from the outlet or a discount mall chain (Rack Room, Famous Footwear, ect.). Been hooked since I was 13 and noticed my classmates on the basketball team had really cool looking shoes. It was on then....

I'm 28 now.

I'm 33 and when I was a child I was fortunate to have grandparents that would buy me Jordans. My parents wasn't feeling it but they did it anyway the 4 releases a year. People thought I was abnormal because I loved shoes. But I soon figured out thanks to Niketalk, there is nothing legally wrong with me lol. Keep enjoying what u do. We work hard and I don't need much out of life material wise, but this shoe thing is my drug of choice.

It really never ends. That why the older crowd gets so much of my respect. They all could have moved on from it, but they dont cause they are true to this. Its not about how many pairs you have. All "sneakerheads" have tons of shoes. Its about real love towards a sneaker. Even if its only a few.

Man...what's funny is that the Infrared VI has the same issue. And owning those, this feature made an impact on my decision to not purchase these. That entirely black upper with no panel separation makes the side profile become totally washed out and flat. I seriously get lost in looking at the upper of the VI....and with that, I can totally understand your point.

It made my VI purchase lackluster...I refused to sign on for another purchase that doesn't excite me once I own them. Especially for $200. No....just, no. Lol!

The good thing about J's though is they're an investment that will pay back your hard earned money when you decide sell them. The key imho is to sell the entire collection at once as long you're profiting or breaking even.

The ability to keep track of the market value of your collection by building a 'portfolio' in a platform like StockX makes me keep track of the 'stock's' worth and if I want to sell anytime it's easier than ever to unload and start over because the market has just grown so immensely.

Picked up my 3 pairs from Footlocker, Footaction and Champs yesterday. I also have another pair from SNKRS which already shipped and arriving on Wednesday. I like this release, but the only detail that was missing is the grey outlining. Other than that, no complaints.

No way buying J's is an investment. What's worse is buying J's, never wearing them, and letting them sit there until you choose to unload them. I'd rather take my chances on the market in this current economy.
