What Is Your Favorite Sneaker?:

Personally, my favorite sneaker would have to be the "Platinum" Yeezy 2s or the "Infrared" Jordan VIs, however I am a huge fan of the "Chicago," "Royal," and "Black Toe" Air Jordan 1s as well.

How Often Do You Buy New Sneakers?:

Most of my money goes to sneakers. I'd say I get a new pair whenever I have money to spend — once every few weeks.

 

Most of my money goes to sneakers.

 

What's The Most You've Spent On A Pair Of Sneakers?:

About $260.

How Many Pairs Of Sneakers Do You Have?:

In total I collected around four pairs of Air Maxes, six pairs of Nikes, a couple pairs of adidas, and about 29 pairs of Jordans before I sold a lot of my sneakers.

Do You Collect A Specific Type Of Sneaker?:

I mostly think that Jordans are the cleanest sneakers, but I'm also a fan of the Air Max 1. I collect Jordans more than any other shoe.

Have You Ever Sold A Pair Of Sneakers?:

Yes, a lot actually! I just recently sold the 2012 release Bred 11s for $295.

How Often Do You Look At Sneakers On The Internet?:

Daily. I'm always trying to find good deals and trades on websites such as Kixify and Sole Collector.

What Is The First Thing That Comes To Mind When You Hear The Term Sneakerhead?:

I think of all the people feeding into the hype, the most important thing is just buying what you like. People buy shoes because of the popularity. Personally I'm not a huge fan of XIIIs, so even the hottest releases such as the "He Got Games" don't really catch my attention.

What Are Your Feelings On The State Of Sneakers Right Now?:

I feel like sneakers are starting to get more popular all over! People are starting to collect and wear more sneakers and they are more common now. I love it! 

What Has Changed About Sneakers In The Last 5/10/20 Years To You?:

Hypebeasts. People who just want a shoe because of the popularity are pretty easy to find nowadays. People want Jordans just to say they own a pair.

What Would You Like To See Change In The Future?:

Less re-sellers. I hate people who steal someone's spot in line just to make a profit. Let someone who loves the shoes get a chance to buy it from the retailer! Camping for sneakers is a cool experience, and resellers are just after the money, which ruins the fun.
