I realized how much I was spending on shoes I wasn't wearing and had to stop for a while. Once again I want the fire red V's that drop Saturday, but I just can't see myself spending the money. I still have my 12 pairs of Bred IV's, 1 pair Bred 11, 1 pair Calvin Bailey 9's, and my University blue Jordan 1 mids that are all DS. I'm a pussy and won't wear them so it seems stupid to buy more pairs haha.
Yeah...3's are damn gorgeous sneakers. When I just got into kicks, I thought they were ugly. But when I saw people rocking em irl I couldn't stop staring. These are my first pair of 3's, hope to get more in the far off future.
Boom. Pretty sure I would trade food stamps for kicks at this point. I chose these over Fire Red 5's (albeit .5 size too big for me on footaction), so I'm pretty sure this is my last purchase for the year. I f*cking hope so. It has to be.
I heard the Jordan V "laney" colorway is releasing this year also. Similar to the above but with a white upper. If so it may have to be my first purchase in a while. I love those Civilist collabo dunks also Tens. Saw them on kicksdeals today for $107 shipped but they were already sold out.
Haha yeah, dudes are calling the pic I posted "Blank Laneys"
What kills me about the dunks is that my pants will most likely cover the leather part of the shoe, such a gorgeous part of it (aside from the tongue ldo). I thought the Question Snakes were my favorite release of the year, but I'm pretty sure that'll change once the dunks come in
I thought that exact same thing about those dunks. That back part looks so damn sexy but with jeans draped they will just look like a pair of black on grey dunks I have. I guess you can still pop that multicolored tongue tho!
Haha my thoughts are exactly the same as yours; nice but can't go with anything. I see pics of people rocking em and it makes me glad I didn't get a pair.
I dropped $600 on a pre-order of Shanghai Shen 5's (Black Laneys) and I'm hoping to resell it for $1k+. Some sites are selling it for $1k so it seems possible. If not, I love em anyway so I'm obv not complaining if I keep em lol
Thanks for the heads up on the Dee Browns. I've been meaning to get into Pumps for a while now, glad I'm finally starting
lol I'm about to make a full push on selling my collection for a live low-stakes BR. I got 2 pairs of DB 1's...if I can't sell the Black Laney's for $1k I might try to trade em + 1 pair of my DB 1's for Paranormans
Great thread. Used to be a big sneaker head back in college. Stopped collecting shoes in 07-08. Have a pretty sweet job lined up and am looking to re-enter the game, although probably not going to buy jordans and dunks this time around.
