Looking though the collection last night and pulling out pairs that I’ve worn a few times or less. Basically pairs I won’t end up wearing and need to sell. I have 1 pair in particular I have worn 2-3 times that I love but know I won’t wear again and it’s the Bred mini swoosh. The only close to all black shoes I wear are my black cement AJ3 and AJ4. This brings me to my question.

What pairs do you have that you love and hold onto but won’t ever wear?

None. I wear all of my shoes until they are beyond acceptable to wear to me (yellowed, dirt that I can't clean, too much creasing, etc...). Then I sell them or throw them in the garbage.

BUT...I don't have as many pairs as a lot of sneakerheads. I used to have 150+ pairs of shoes and in that case, it took a while to get outfits to match some of my shoes. After my collection of AF1s were stolen, I keep 20-30 pairs of sneakers max. It's not a horrible investment.

Honestly mine isn’t that large but there are some impulse buys and pairs like the Breds that look amazing but when I put them on, I take them off right away and put them back in the box.

AM1 have much better materials, but they look really off to me. I love denim and sashiko stuff, but the colorblocking and details went overboard on the Denham. AJ1 Mocha quality is garbage, but the colorway is a simple and works with a lot of outfits, and 1s always look good on foot.

Yep every time I open the box I love that Bred mini swoosh but will wear my BC3s and BC4s instead. Said I’d never keep a shoe I don’t wear so it’s got limited time left in the closet.

I'm sure it's been asked and answered but how does the leather toebox look after a handful of wears (say 10+)?

I want to like some of the leather cws but i don't have a ton of faith in how they'll look once worn.
