    **** like this drives me nuts. Like I'm supposed to be impressed? If I was a multi-millionaire, I'd have a lot of "dope" kicks too. I'm lower-middle class, and would never trade my collection for his.

    Truer words have never been spoken. Exactly. If after all the essentials (home, family, transportation, medical/health stuff, etc.) were all taken care of over exorbitantly, and we still had MILLIONS to spare, with most of our knowledge on kicks (I feel confident in saying that a lot of us are more personally knowledgeable on kicks than Offset), we’d ALL have crazy collections. Show me more deep cuts and rare-ish pairs, as opposed to the usual famous/hyped/top-10-limited type pairs. Same ol’ same that we’ve seen a hundred times before.

    I’ve honestly thought that outside a couple of celebs owning SBs before being famous, most of the celebs with older limited SBs in the collection are being given pairs cooked up by Nike recently. I know Nike can go into the kitchen and cook older releases and seed whoever with them, so I figure that’s where all the new found SB rocking celebs are getting their kicks from.

    They are definitely not being given new samples of older past models. There was a huge blowup on Jordan side since Drake wanted Undefeated 4s (And new Tokyo 5s) made and so they mocked up friends and family pairs but other than JB side no SBs have been batched up and “remade” into new samples to be given to celebrities.

    They are all millionaires, they probably hire someone to go look for the shoe, seeded newer pairs (yellow canary diamond dunks for example) or go to consignment stores to buy.

    I definitely agree that Nike are not making them new pairs just for them.

    Yeah, my thoughts exactly. I don’t know about Nike making new pairs of old releases (though they absolutely could). Like you said, they’re f***in’ millionaires. Give their team/stylists the checkbook, say “go find me tons of dope/old kicks,” and set it and forget it.

    I’m sure Nike stores a good amount of shoes just Incase someone connected or famous wants a pair from a certain run. Free advertisement and hype.

    Having a ton of rare shoes doesn’t make you any cooler, instant collections are just being bought.
    Reminds me of cribs where these rappers show off palatial mansions but they’re rentals.

    Exactly. Hell, if all of a sudden I had a ish ton of money, and all of the essentials/necessities were taken care of and then some, and I put a bunch away, I too would blow some of it on pairs I’d otherwise have no business being able to acquire. It’s just funny how these dude show off these “collections” like we’re supposed to be impressed. The interesting thing would be for someone with real knowledge of kicks to sit down with them and pick their brains about their pairs. I’m no damn historian, but I’d be curious to see what they know about all the pairs they swear up and down about being passionate about.

    my 2 cents is that having thousands of pairs of sneakers doesn't make you a "sneakerhead", and only having 5-10 pairs doesn't mean you're not.

    shoutout to everyone for keeping it civil and mature

    Yeah, it's not about quantity, but rather the "passion" (short for having appreciation for the shoes for other qualities other than exclusivity and popularity) that defines a "sneakerhead."

    I don't consider or call myself a "sneakerhead." I'm just a guy who likes shoes that couldn't care less about all of the other stuff associated with them.

    Well, FWIW I dont want to be lumped into "sneakerhead" culture if that includes unbreakable kicks, foamer, and countless other losers.

    Back on the subject of rehashing older sb's

    Remember when some shops got certain sizes of rehashed older models.

    Saw rehash futura lows recently and was so jelly

    Anyone know where I can get some dunks for the low? I don't care about the colorway, just want a pair to skate.

    So so many places. Skateshops, ebay, goat, stockx, select other boutiques like concepts have SB accounts. I'm assuming if you skate you know some skateshops but if not, some big ones that ship are CCS, tactics, active, premier, so many more. You'll have to do your own research to see who's got em the cheapest.
