Seek Out Old Sporting Goods Stores

It's easy for all of us to think that sneakers started in our lifetime. There's no doubt it has become huge in the past two decades, but let's not forget that there is always someone who did it before you. Old Man Jenkins isn't just a Sponge Bob character, he was an entrepreneur that got a little overzealous in his buying habits for that sporting goods store he owns down the road. Don't be afraid to ask if they have back stock, you might come up on some vintage joints you never knew existed. (And even if you don't find that full size run of Air Force Zeros, maybe you make a connection for future drops.)
