Each Tuesday and Thursday, we reach out to the Complex community and ask our followers to Twitpic the sneakers they're wearing that day. Some followers are so consistent in tweeting heat that we select them for our Twit-Kicks All-Star column, a post where they break down the top 10 sneakers in their closet. This week it's Nicolas Escobar's turn. Check out @esco777's collection by hitting the jump, and don't forget to keep photographing your weekly kicks and sending them in—you could be the next All-Star.

How it is that you have such a solid collection? “I got into the game almost 15 years ago. The Concord XI changed my life and my way of thinking about kicks, and I started doing whatever it took to cop every Jordan that dropped for the next few years. I also started copping other Nikes, mostly Air Max. One of my nick names back then was 'Air Max' because I would cop every colorway of every Air Max every year up until like 1999. I fell out the game for a few years (and lost a lot of my O.G.s) but then came back hard in 2005. I am now a big Air Force 1-head and have caught the SB bug. I also buy Converse, Vans, and New Balance. Now that I'm older, I really appreciate more than just the kicks, I also really love the culture that I am a part of. I've made a lot of sneaker friends (and connections) all over the world. I kind of have that Godfather mentality about it now. I help people from all over get kicks, with the understanding that I might call on them one day to do me a favor and do the same for me. Sneakers are my life and I'm gonna die in them.”
