Does anyone else think that they will never stop buying Jordans? Even if i had every pair there would still be retros that always are dropping hopefully. But i have such an addiction i cant help myself if i see a pair i will get them!!! my wife use to get so mad because i came home with boxes and boxes and the door bell is always ringing with the ups fedex or mail man with another pair that i ordered from somewhere lol. But i dont kno if i will ever stop or slow down does anyone else feel this way or am i all alone on this (which i highly doubt)

As long as I like what I buy and dont buy the shoes "just to buy them" then I think theres nothing wrong with it. As long as its not hurting anyone then its all good

Well when you think about it, JB releases retro's like a motherf'er, once you got all of the og colorways, & others you like what's next?
Retro + colorways? Which drop maybe once or twice a year? As the years go, you'll be buying about two pair of Jordans a year.
Time to time the only retros you should have to buy are the AJ 5's, 6's, 11's due to yellowing.
Believe me you'll stop sometime...

Been buyin for close to 18 years with pictures to prove it and i still havent gotten tired of it and i doubt i will . Theres so many other things you can collect with jordan under rated retros , PEs , samples , Older good team sneakers & if melos line gets better theres that and lets hope wades sig turns out like some of the pics ive seen then you can collect that .

The point is im like my sig says im a JUMPMAN LOYALIST and ill never stop buying Jordans ill just keep collecting and collecting and collecting . Im sure OP feels the same theres no way of stoping once your a real jordan head. Sure quality might suck and cws might be lacking here and there but when it comes down to it if your a real Jordan fan you wont stop you keep going sure i buy a few Nike Basketball sneakers , LBJ or KBs , Air Maxs , forces , dunks , SB's but I  mainly buy jordans and very frequently and i wont be stopping any time soon .

THere will be reasons why people stop. A guy whom i just bought some cool grey IVs and DTRT spizikes for dirt cheap (VNDS quality) quit the shoe game because he was gonna move to a smaller condo. He was selling a lot of kicks. He told me that he never thought he'd quit, but then...the sneakers didn't have any room in his life anymore.

I wore my first pair of J's 18 years ago and started collecting 14 years ago.  But I feel like as I get older my style has evolved and is a little more mature.  Although I still rock J's and wear nike gear, I don't have as many opportunities to rock them with the clothes I wear now.  Back when all my gear was baggy I could rock J's with anything.  But now that my style is more fitted the J's don't look as good with them.

I've stopped and started again like 3x's!!

I'm on hiatus right now till summer cause theres nothing i'm interested in for the next few months!!

I dunno when i'll stop, but i constantly slow down and give away my old kicks just to make room for more. LOL
