Once it's established that you are indeed a sneaker collector, it's time to sort out exactly what type of collector you are. One way to distinguish collectors is by how they collect: Are you the type who does all your transactions online, or do you get your hands (and everything else) dirty in the basements of old sporting goods stores? Another way is by what they collect: Do you have a storage unit full of current releases, or are all of your boxes tagged as promo samples? A third way is by permanence: Do you keep every pair of sneakers you buy/receive, or is your "collection" essentially a giant pyramid scheme? Check out The 15 Types of Sneaker Collectors and let us know which one applies best to you.
