Used to collect a bunch of stuff before and was one of the early members of Niketalk, but Nike/Jordan has watered down the market these past few years (especially with Retros) to the point that it's getting ridiculous. I remember the good old days in the late 90's, early 00's when Retros were something special. Now, they just pump out the same stuff over and over and it's just played out (at least to me... but they're still selling out non-stop, so why should they stop?).

Awesome pickups! Just curious, which Jordans are your favorite? I wish they would come back out with some retro XVI's. Also sick Brons. I'm a fan of the 11's. Ive hated most of the others he's had lol.

My favorites are the XI's. I had over 200 pairs before I sold them all off... Now I'm back starting from scratch.
I quit cards kinds to go into shoes again...eventually I'll sell the shoes and back into cards...

Considering I have another 15 pairs coming and dropping over 5k...
It's more addicting. But I was lucky enough to get the red October yeezys and sold those for a nice profit

I get real picky about my shoes...Jason Markk cleaner is always on standby; have zero interest in Jordans, but I'll pay close attention to the PE's on the court

I've been collecting shoes since 1994. I was 11 when I purchased my first pair with my own money. My shoe collection is similar to my baseball card collection. Way too big and my wife complains about MY shoes being in the way, when usually that role is reversed. Here's my latest pickup. Bo Jackson and Albert Pujols Nike Air Trainer SC2010 pack. The top pair is a tribute to the OG color way of the Air Trainer SC. The bottom, a new shoe dedicated to Pujols. I traded a Polo jacket that I paid $2.50 for in exchange for this pack. So basically, including shipping it cost me a whopping $10! Anyways, enjoy.




Edit*

I took this picture recently. I went to a card show back in 2001, my senior year of HS, and sold a Kobe Bryant 96-97 Fleer Lucky 13 and a couple of others for $75. I took that money to Finish Line in Carbondale, Il after the show and picked these up for $49.99. The best part is I still wear these almost 13 years later!
