"Def could u post ur thoughts on the sneaker game? I'm just really debating on selling my collection. I know that's not what u would do. I just feel like there's no point of me copping kicks. Where I live VERY few ppl know sneakers. N with this $160 plus tax for js is too much, I'm not broke, just feel they getting ridiculous. Just wanted ur opinion. Just a simple response/ comment will suffice. Preciate it"
Hmm, I'm a sneakerhead to death, I live and breathe kicks, if there's one thing I know it's kicks, if you feel like there's no point of you copping kicks because of where you live that ppl dont know about kicks, that should make you even more want to be into kicks, I know how it is to live in a area where nobody knows shit and all they know are jordans and fusions, but that in all brought me to where I am @ today, it made me want to be that single dude who broke necks and had ppl ask me about my kicks, and I'd put them onto shit. For me, the sneaker game is a very special thing, I don't just cop kicks to cop em to rock em, I love the creativity behind a shoe, the history, the craftmanship, the rarity in having a certain shoe, knowing that I'm one of some-odd ppl in the nation who own a certain shoe is special to me. I love the hunt in finding a hard to cop shoe and getting it for box price, it makes it all more worth it to me.
I understand the whole JB going to 160 jump up, I don't agree with it, If they used better quality materials then I'd be all for it., but thats not the case, I mean you said you weren't broke, then why feel the need to sell your collection?
Sometimes when my love for kicks are dying, I just go and open all my boxes and look at my kicks and think back on what it took me to obtain the shoe, that just makes me love it all over again. One of my best experiences within the sneaker game, is just waiting on line for a shoe and discussing kicks with a buncha of ppl I don't know, ppl that don't even look like sneakerheads, waiting to cop kicks, its a great experience to share knowledge with ppl on kicks.
I met this hippy dude he was about 48 yrs old waiting online for infra reds one time, this dude had on OG black cement III's that still looked good, and he was just putting us on to so much history about Jordans it was insane. Things like that alone renew my love for sneakers everytime.
Maybe if you could try one of those things, it may help you out on your decision to quit the game.
