Prior to the III, I wouldn't really consider myself a "sneakerhead" per se. I mean, I did cop the 1s and IIs in all their various color iterations, but something different happened with the IIIs. With the kicks before, I actually wore those shoes for their intended purpose (i.e., played tennis in tennis shoes, played ball in basketball shoes! Wow!). But when the IIIs dropped, I started to care for them differently. I started to treat them like a prized possession and I think that stems from the progressive design. I remember when I first wore the IIIs to school, everyone in the classroom INCLUDING the teacher looked down at my feet. I snapped 35 necks in one shot! I've been a sneakerhead ever since...
