What's good everybody? I've been member of Niketalk for a minute. I'm not sure if this is the right forum because I rarely post or reply. I've heard people's horror stories about collecting sneakers and I must say for the first time I've witnessed it today. I wore some Nike Air Flight 89's that have been deadstock for about 10 years or more and they completely fell apart. I've been collecting since 1999 and this is the first pair to ever do this. Needless to say I was pissed. Collecting became a habit that has been hard to break. I spent 10 years in the military and wore combat boots five days a week so I was unable to wear everything I bought so stuff just accumulated. I definitely agree with the people that say "wear everything"! I know nothing last forever but to see your hard earned money just crumple away is disappointing homie. Now I'm sitting here looking at two deadstock pairs of Air Jordan XI Concords that I bought from Finishline back on 10/25/2000 wondering if this will be the same result. Hopefully this helps at least one person.......
