Cantaloupsareswell says in southern Maine the scene isn't that huge at all: 

"I live in a fairly upper-middle class town in southern Maine. There are like four other kids at my school of about 800 who are "sneakerheads"—one of which is my brother. The guys who are into sneakers are all really chill, and since we live in Maine and our closest Foot Locker hardly gets any releases, there isn't much of a chance to be hypebeasting."
