I always get so excited to cop my next pair and then i cant wait for it to come in the mail.. And then it arrives and im still very excited but within the week i'm already on the hunt for my next pair..

Does anyone else feel that no matter what they have they could never be happy enough with their collection? I'm completely addicted to the rush of getting a new pair and then unboxing it when it arrives.

I'm just hoping that somewhere down the line (before i'm broke) i'll be satisfied with my collection

i give up smoking marijuana 10 months out a year (i aint do that 2009 and 2010 i was straight smoking and not buying kicks)

i smoke like a crackhead in November and December of each year

just so i can buy all the retros/nikes released in the year

so yeah jordans/nikes are my second drug

its better then empty baggies and phillies guts

at least with shoes i got something to show for my money being spent

I really only fiend for og colorways that Mj wore, there's some exceptions but not many. Once I get the retros/og's that I'm after I'm going to slow way down and not go so crazy

Id say most people in the forum are currently addicted

or fresh outta rehab. That's just the way it works. Most people stop
collecting for a minute but ALWAYS come back for that just gotta

have it pair....lol Everyone looks to justify their purchases, sometimes

that itch just needs to be scratched.

its cool dudes can stop smoking 10 months out the year to try and cop kicks, i really wish i could stop smoking,  I probably have more kicks to rock or be able to double up. its better to be addicted to something like sneakers than smoking all day

I wanted to quit long time ago and paused because not having enough money to continue.
Now i finally earn enough and i'm back in the game ^^
I guess i am addicted being a sneakerhead to hunt for more Air Jordans.

I had stopped buying Js because of all of the fakes. I bought 2 pair in 06 (Mars 4s, white/blue 5s) then stopped again. But this year I've been completely back on 'the pipe'. lol....but hey fellas, we could be spending our money on much MUCH worse things out there, right?

I went pretty crazy this summer, but I also sold some of my older shoes away. It's proportional to me. I cop alot, but I make sure I sell enough to make it excessive.

Yup, I spend over a K probably every month, sometimes in a weekend. Takes away a lot of stress from me...... i'm not a People Person.
