This week we are focusing on sneaker collectors. While we can tell you what types of sneaker collectors there are and what sneakers are worth collecting, nothing beats talking with people that actually live the life. 

Recently, Jacques Slade caught up with the front man at the Holy Grail in Downtown Los Angeles, King Poetic. Not only does he know what the going price is for the hypest kicks, he is one of LA's biggest collectors. From selling candy to other kids at school, to renting out his own video game for kids in his neighborhood, King Poetic was determined to get the best heat he could. Check out the video above and learn a bit more about kicks he loves and why he just stopped counting how many pairs he owns.
