i'm waiting for a random og 30th Anniversary Obsidian AM1 restock to pop up somewhere in Europe and that's it for now. i'll have all 5 og colorways plus the Currys, the Ridgerocks and the Watermelons. that Safari size? exclusive will be impossible to order on their bot-infested app (instore could work if you have one in your area though) so i'm not even going to bother downloading it or make myself available at the exact time of the drop

from the widely available cw's that i don't have, i like the Rebel Skulls and maybe the (kinda boring but nice) Sands but i'm not in a hurry to buy them even at retail, maybe if i spot a sale or something. there are a few Jewels and Pinnacles that are OK but i'm not biting for now. wish i hadn't slept on the Atmos Elephants early last year, impossible to find for a sane price now. one to look forward to in 2027 maybe. there are a few womens cw's that i like but my feet are too big

Or do you mean actually queuing to buy a pair from the store at like 10am when it opens.

~15 pairs. i hate myself. i had two 5-6 months ago. honestly, i've already realised and came to terms with the fact it has to be a mild midlife crisis..

sneakerheads with a lot more disposable income have at least 50, some even 300+ so i tell myself i'm not quite Imelda Marcos yet :roll:



honestly w the depth of your knowledge i am suprised youre at only 15. That shows a lotta restraint!! where’s the passion come from, you think? Like would you ever wanna design your own?

well, restraint + relative lack of funds, i suppose lol. i can definitely see how some sneakerheads end up with those huge collections of soles that will likely disintegrate in 15 years, especially if you rarely wear them. i'm thankful i can afford a manageable collection with every pair getting enough use through the years

i was OK (not good/great) at art/design in my teens and would've loved to become a sneaker (or car) designer, used to spend hours sketching away. it was the mid 90s though, didn't seem very doable from here at the time

it's pretty easy to kill some time looking up new releases online these days. it just kills your wallet. i used to stay away from it on purpose but a few months ago i decided i wanted a pair of og AJ1s and a few pairs of og AM1s so i started looking online so i can order them from the UK before they exit the EU. then i realised how easy it is to order sneaks from Germany etc. and now i'm waiting for a German store to locate a pair of Tinkers they accidentally sent to Greece

i'm assuming you're referring to boost soles, which have the added issue of looking like styrofoam. i only "got it" when i bought a dirt cheap pair (only had to use ~20 euro of my own money) and wore them for a few days. seeing them on feet didn't win me over and simply trying them on in the store didn't really do the trick either

they're my go-to chill/comfort sneaks, when it's not cold or raining anyway. i much prefer the look of 2017-18 AM1s and retro runners though, obviously. and they're relatively comfy for such old tech so i decided to stop at 3 pairs of boost (ub, eqt, pb), even though i like a few Inikis

you can get them with black soles but i think that looks even weirder somehow

I would never have looked at that much white sole before but after I got a pair of NMD's last year I would have no problem anymore. Tho at this point I could end up wearing those Adidas chunky dads.

big white soles are definitely a ruiner for me..
i almost want to like NMD's, and i think they look great from the side, but putting them on and looking down, something just isn't right about that all flyknit-covered look. i need some toe-detail in my shoes, maaaaan
im all for future-forward products for the most part, but sneaker innovations for a long time have seemed a little too forced and out there for me, but it's probably because i'm average height and basically white, but a coworker
comes in the other day with those doofy moonrock shoes and makes them look sick as fuck. lol
edit: i really like those adidas HU Tennis' posted above tho!

Not really a fan of the Wangs after collection 2, and even then it was purely visual. The pair of sock runners I bought left me with blisters on my ankles because of the stupid design.

I'll have to see what colors the Pumas are releasing this time. Can't afford to be spending much lately but I still find my ways. The Nike Element Reacts had my interest too until I notice the upper is translucent. Yuck.
