I used to buy like 2 or 3 pairs of sneakers a month.  Then I got to the point when I had 175 pairs and still wore the same pair every day. 

I buy like 2 or 3 pairs a year now, just cause I always liked sneakers. 

The biggest thing that helped me was Jordan's quality going to garbage and limited editions.  I used to get really upset about all the resellers, etc that made it impossible to just walk in and buy a pair of sneakers when they came out (like I used to) but now I'm glad because it made me quit.

There was a time people made fun of me for how many sneakers I had.  Then everyone started doing it.  Around 2004, when everyone really jumped in, I pretty much got out.

True statement, the hype in those forums gets the best of us. Hype does kill!

Hello, my name is Rayray3000... and I'm a sneakerholic... (Hi Rayray3000)



I told myself I was going to take it down a notch after the spacejam/varsity red 6 release. JB quality and prices made it easy for me to realize that basically no release would rekindle that feeling I had when picking up a pair of jordans in the early 90s. Right when I thought I was going to be able to do it, the Kobe 5 drops, which in my opinion is the highest quality shoe Nike has released in a very long time. My hopes are to really slow it down after the 5s, but JB is planning on dropping white/cement 4s and 3s now??? It's gonna be tough man...

I don't see your point, anything you are excessive about is an addiction.

Go back to nike/nike retro....Chances are, if you're browsing general/music/sports, you aren't even into kicks like that anymore..

QFT, black af1s are all I wear


I keep sneakers with hype that come out free after reselling other pairs of the same shoe,
If I end up never wearing them it just ends up paying half of my rent
