I’ve been officially collecting sneakers for over a decade. What started as a way to relive my childhood soon became something dark and consumptive. Initially buying sneakers was fun because they were releasing retros I always wanted, that were made with quality materials, and that were easy to obtain. However over time the fun was taken out when sneakers became difficult to obtain and expensive. I carelessly kept buying those sneakers thinking it would make me happy, when in reality it only brought me sadness.
Fortunately I eventually opened my eyes to the garbage I was buying and decided to change my sneaker habits. My evolution of collecting sneakers has led to the belief that collecting sneakers is most fun when they’re easy to obtain and are affordable. The best way to do this is to shop at outlets and in the clearance department in stores. In a way it’s almost like reliving the good old days of when you walked into a store and discovered a new sneaker.
My latest sneaker pickup that I’m happy about was purchased at a Sears outlet. This sneaker is called the Nike Court Tour. The uppers come in red canvas, while the bottom sole is white rubber. The first time I saw them I thought they looked like Eric Koston’s SB’s, because of the similar silhouette. Despite not being Koston’s they’re still pretty nice and comfortable. What I love about them the most is the bright red color because it matches well with a pair of jeans. As for size, well, I usually wear a 10.5, but I got them in a 10 because they’re made for wide feet. Overall, I’m very satisfied with this sneaker and especially the price. So don’t be afraid to go sneaker hunting because you never know what you might find.
