Sneaker Collection--Summer 2011
My sneaker collection as of Summer 2011
Since I've gotten quite a few inquiries about my collection, here's a shot I took over the summer before I moved out of my old place. I've been debating whether or not to post this, because I feel like this shot doesn't do my sneakers justice by glazing over the details of each individual sneaker. But at the same time, my collection as a whole is a pretty good representation of me... so I figured, what the heck (:
I started getting into sneakers towards the end of 2008. Although the oldest ones in my collection are a pair of Nike Dunks, it was a set of Creative Recreation Dicocos that really got me excited about kicks. Ever since that fateful pair of Creative Rec's, I've been steadily accumulating kicks that catch my attention.
I never intended to be a sneaker collector--I just bought what I liked, until one day, I realized that I had a pile of shoeboxes in my room! It's something that kinda creeps up on you and hits you before you know it... kinda like with my nail polishes!
I can remember every moment when I had laid eyes on each pair. Each sneaker holds a memory, reflecting my likes at a particular time in my life. For this reason, it's really hard for me to choose a favorite. Even though my tastes are always changing and developing, I think you can really get a feel for my personality through the kicks that I've picked out for myself over the years.
It wasn't until more recently that I've been getting into the Jordan brand and other models. Adidas Originals will always be a favorite brand of mine, and Nike Dunks will always be one of my favorite models.
