People talk about the jumpman 1's like they were wearing 1's before 2013.

I need those royals too clean. Hopefully they release sooner rather than later, cause I can't wait that long 8o.

Not to mention that 90% of the time anyone posts on feet pics the pair always looks near DS

Man, nobody usually ever wears their 2nd 3rd and 4th pair. They buy those extra pair to kidd themselves, and trick their mind into thinking one day down the road I will wear this pair because one will get dirty beyond freshness. When in reality the 100+ pair they have in rotation will never get to the point of being beat, except for their daily "Air Max 90's".

 

So they just hoard shoes. After college I use to do that, then I  looked at all the unused, yellowing dried out sneaks I had sitting in boxes, and I said "I'm stupid!!"

 

You will get your occasional rough shoe wearer, that may get to his second pair, but thats a rarity!!!!

Spot on with this post.  A lesson that I have had to teach myself.  As you mentioned, I found that I was hardly wearing sneakers as I got older.  Especially when my rotation was quite large.  Although, I still buy doubles of 1's because they are virtually indestructible.  Those are my go-to shoes.

May be the case but I enjoy my shoes even more when I know I have a 2nd pair so I can beat them up. And there's always the chance that these shoes may not release for a while. Look at some of the Jordan 1 releases we are getting for the first time in what over 30 years? I just enjoy them and so do others so let em do what they like pa

Oh I know , I had 3 pair of 94 OG Chi's.  Two pair I got for around $35. I only wore one pair. One DS pair I sold to my friend about 10 years ago just because he seen them and asked. The other pair I wore disappeared (probably walked off with a relative), and the other DS pair was lastly worn about 7 years ago, now I'm pretty much afraid to wear it, in fear of what happened to my Original Black Cement 3's. I know alot about buying 3 and 4 pairs of shoes, I was doing it alot back then. But I only sold 3-5 pairs of shoes in my life. So the double and triples I had were and are pretty useless.

 

I aint saying don't go out and buy 10 pairs of  the same shoe. Do what you like. What makes you happy, still makes me feel how I felt before you was happy. My man just asked what happens to the 2nd and 3rd pair and I gave him a honest response from someone that use to buy 2 and 3 pairs..

I don't see how it's different from collecting anything else

See I dont really collect shoes, I buy them to wear. That is the exact reason why I stopped buying 2-3 pairs. I realized I am not a collector, therefore there was really no need for ME to collect multiple pairs like that.

Just a few recent pics of 1's I haven't had the chance to post.

QFT. I've been this way since college. If I know I really like a shoe I double because it allows me to wear the hell out of the first pair. I won't get mad at myself or my boys when I'm out in some fresher **** And the crew randomly decides to hit a club or some random event that could trash my sneaks.

I also donate a lot of my kicks, whether it be to family or even some of my students from time to time. Having doubles and triples certainly helps.

I'm the same way as some others though i will only double on 1s because that's what I really wear. I regret doubling on infrared 6s from a couple year back because now I'm literally forcing myself to wear the first pair.

You think I wanted a black toe that was a mid with a jumpman or a bred for that matter? No but that was the best option save for paying alot of resell for shoes I had as a kid so, multi packs it was.

Ah the Humphrey years! Honestly, nobody wanted those things-but at the time GH led the charge to overbrand and fusion everything JB was doing... Thank goodness JB survived that era, those were really dark times for the brand.

I finally picked these up, DS 11.5 from ebay. Wanted em ever since they came out in 09 but being in the states and not having an ebay account til a couple years ago limited me in that search. I just sold my 2013 chicagos to make room in the rotation for these, couldn't stand the stiffness of that pleather on the 2013 chicagos.

I was thinking the same thing. I been buying 1s heavy since like 07/08. I still have a decent amount of "jumpman 1's" in my closet.

I'm not even that much of a purist when it comes down to it. I would certainly buy a jumpman 1 if the color-way is suits my taste. I picked up those black and cement 1s last year in fact.

Youre in for a rude awakening with those.  The DTRT's are stiff as well.
